A wonderful direct version of New Dawn. Take the technical lower wall via some thin moves to meet the bulges of New Dawn. Climb through the bulges and from the ledge above the bulges break out left to the lower-off.

Brilliant. Felt a fair bit easier than Herbie, i suppose bottom end 7c+. Has everything, savage fingery start, burly middle, and delicate top. Just brilliant.

Mega route, easy for grade I reckon as you don't do half as much of the pumpy traverse as on New dawn. That said, top wall is v technical and fluffable despite the generous rest on the new dawn sloper. Start is quite reachy but there is a breather b4 you embark on the also reachy undercut moves above
