The bold, left-trending ramp starting up The Friendly Landlord of Durlston Castle. Climb diagonally past two very thin threads to a finish on poor rock.

3 stars my arse. Perfect rock my arse. I nearly died on this pile. The threads consist of 3mm cord behing a razor bade, the rest of the gear is poor at best and suitably spaced to provide a skull crushing pendulum. The rock at the top is a conglomerate of arse fungus with little snappy crunchy bits. And it's not even pumpy.... a bag.

I second what Dave says! Good job I seconded him in the dark as I would have been a little bit more scared than I was! Big pendulum potential.....

Bit of an egotistical route IMHO Anyone else actually done this?
