The steep wall, eventually gaining the finish of Screw You Hippy.
This route is so appalling that, in a twisted sort of a way, its a strangely exhilarating experience. Leave the piles of hard ,crusted mud on all the main holds . . .It adds to the character of the climb.
This possibly the worst route I've ever done at Portland. The start is on crap, brittle, muddy rock and is very pumpy and I dogged the slab crux above, after moving round to the left to preclip the bolt. Truly awful. Don't bother.
Also the rock above the 2nd bolt has broke away so it would probably fail.
There's nothing wrong with the rock. It's actually really nice. It's just covered in mud. It's not a bad route when clean.
for the record this whole area was subject to about a weeks cleaning prior to the bolts going in, the following winter a mud slide engulfed the routes, attempts were made to escavate the routes but it was fealt it was best to let nature and time be the final judge, don't expect too much and please don't be too critical no-one can turn back the tide, (except maybe Pete ;-))
