Although only a linking section of climbing it provides a surprisingly good and quite long section of independent moves. From the second bolt on Reptile Smile, climb up and right to join Slings Shot.

This route should have pumpy arm symbols. The two adjacent ones did and this didn't so I presumed it wouldn't be pumpy - how wrong I was.

I agree. Definately more pumpy than it neighbours and quite good too.

nice route - easy start, technical move across to meet slingshot and then jug hauling - great!

I found myself straying quite easily onto Slings shot. I'm not sure if I did this right because the traverse across at the top was very awkward; there's nothing much above the last bolt for the hands so I went up, clipped and then almost dropped down half a metre to manage the traverse. Might try again some time...
