Another strong corner-line with a hard crux sequence midway. Climb the lower wall into the base of the corner-line. Move up and make a hard move through a slight bulge to gain easier ground.

A couple of technical moves at the crux can reduce the reach significantly, above this there is a sneaky hands off rest; ramble to the top on good holds.

Not too reachy if you use a couple of (poor) intermediates. Good route.

Nice route with some great moves, it would be a good idea if all the old drilled pegs on Battleship are replaced before somebody strips one in a fall

I thought the pins looked surprisingly bomber. It is a little hard to tell what's actually going on in the drilled hole though. Nice route even though a little one-movey -- the groove at the top has some interesting moves above the no hands rest although much easier than below.

Pegs replaced with nice new staples
