A stunning climb tackling the soaring groove and wildly-overhanging prow right of Ecstasy. The finishing sequence is a stopper.
FFA. Craig Smith, Robert Smith 4.1988. A superb line that was initially named Let Them Eat Jellybeans but is now usually referred to as The Bulge. FA. Dave Nichol (A3) 1965.
