Another gem. Climb through the low overhangs with difficulty, then continue up the sustained wall above to a wide corner. Follow this to a steep finish past a pocket.

Better than No Man is an Island, only slightly harder, and with NO sandy holds! Pre clip the second draw if you are less than six-three!

I'm less than 6'3" and I survived! Stick clip belay for max security !?!

I think this is 6c+ for the short. The rest of the route is a pleasant 6a though.

I would agree with Al. And Tom you are taller than normal.

With the second bolt stick-clipped, it's a really fun, varied route.

Goi - I am bog standard 6ft! You you just remember me in my tragically big hair days.

clip the 2nd bolt from the big undercut.
Jus - 03/Apr/06

Clip the 2nd bolt when you have your hands on the juggy break above it - it is not exactly run out (bolt by your knees, no chance of deck out), and it is safer and less tiring than trying to clip from below on the undercut.

Hardish first half, very pleasant romp to the top after that.
