23m. A superb climb which is a direct version of New Dawn. A technical lower wall with some thin reachy moves. Things beef up a bit at New Dawn before breaking 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
