Desperate technical climbing which keeps shedding holds. The current best line is to move right after the 3rd bolt on the headwall, into Poor Dill. You could move back left above this at hard 7c, or try and climb direct at an artificial 7c+.

not sure about this route, the most obvious thing to do now is to climb to above the break and then i think at the third bolt above the break to go right ending up on gary's new route and finishing as for that (easy 7c), you could go right then back left unplesant (7C) or with blinkers on straight up 7c+, if i was Dave Pegg in 87 and there was the first choice i would go for that as its the best most obvious method, have holds grown over the years?
