27m. A superb pitch taking the centre of the grey wall. Start at the base of a grassy ramp and climb leftwards up the wall, past 2 pegs in a thin horizontal crack, to the main-break just left of some grass (peg). Pull the bulge and climb up left to a ledge (thread and pegs above). Go up direct to some undercuts (peg) and finish direct. Lower-off.
FA. Martin Berzins, Chris Sowden, Tony Burnell 1985. Martin Berzins excellent contributions to the wall start with this brilliantly-named pitch.

Only E5 6a if you know the best sequence. Don't believe the guide book.

Yeah, but E5 6b if you don't (and it's dirty)!

A brilliant route that felt 6b to me.
