The new version of the old traditional route has a slightly different line and is now a popular sport route. Starting underneath In Brine move up and rightwards to an undercut and make a few desperate fingery pulls leftwards to get established under the roof of In Brine. Follow this to finish.
FA. Dominic Lee 1982. One of the hardest around, named after the inverted mono move. Retro-bolted in 2009

Will make a pleasant 7a+ or 7b when retro bolted. A crucial sliding nut makes it not too dangerous

who is going to retro it then? Not me!

Peg snapped/fell out as I brushed past it on a TR. Felt harder than Sardine and Toadside, 7c at least, but had a few loose bits and looked like it might have lost holds fairly recently.
