Eliminate in style, but worthwhile climbing. Start below a diagonal crack and a bolt between two staples. Climb the lower dirty wall and continue to the upper face, which gives good moves, though on a very tight line.

Loose choss on a wandering line that struggles for independence from adjacent routes. A piss poor waste of bolts and glue.

... and typical of many of Gary's routes on Portland.

Have to disagree with the comments on here. Ok the start is bad and it joins Return to Roissy for about 3m in the middle, but the rest seemed independant and similar in style and quality to Screw the Roses next door - I think it felt just about as hard as well or maybe I was missing something? Reasonable at 7a.
