A tricky piece of climbing that heads up right to join the upper section of Bend Sinister.

There's a boulder-problem start, direct to the flowstone undercuts. Slappy. B4/5/6???

Are you sure you got this right Ben? Its the best route of the three surely and certainly a 'line'? Hardly a bag of s**t.

I didn't give it a rating. Wouldn't say it was shit - it's got some good (damn hard) moves and barely any rests until it straightens out.

Surely this is way harder than F6c? I'm assuming that it goes diagonally up right to the flowstone (cool rock-over), then stretches right to the square-cut edge of the groove on Bend Sinister, then continues as for that route with the hard moves to pass the flowstone buldge followed by easier stuff to the top. I think it therefore includes the bit of Bend Sinister that I found the most troublesome plus a start that is almost as hard and a touch longer. I thought probably 7a and certainly found it harder than Tipping the Scales.
