A milestone which is an 'old style' sport route with regard to the bolting. The tricky lower wall leads to a poor undercut above the second bolt. Make a couple of desperate moves upwards to a good slot. Finish left into Why Me? To the right is an old project with pegs in it.

P2 awaits a free ascent. Bob Dearman promised free beer for life to the first person to do this. Take a look before you decide to accept the challenge.

One awkward move and one thin and powerful move, however once you reach the slot it feels all over - just make sure your belayer pays attention during the clip.

22 bloody years old and it still stops all sorts of folk. Not the greatest line but a visionary move from Moffat back in the day. Standard crux fodder for Peak 8a+/b!
