26m. Bridge up the wide lower section of the gully until it is possible to transfer into the crack to the right. Continue up this, passing a possible constricted stance, to the left-hand end of the great roof. Pull over the bulge then either finish easily, or if you are up to it, climb as far as a thread, descend a couple of moves and shuffle rightwards on rounded holds out into space to the final exposed (and thankfully easy) rib.
Really not a particularly appealing route. The top traverse by far the best part, and should be coupled with Technical Slab, not this nasty crack/slot.
I'm looking forward to seeing a topo. The old BMC guide is useless in this respect - no line is shown for this route, and once I got above the Hollybush, I had no idea where it went, based on the description...
Thought it was excellent and found route finding easy. The mid point stance makes the route, although it could possibly be done in one long pitch.
The topo doesn't help, it shows it going straight through the holly!
Is the route supposed to start to the left of the holly (as in the description) or to the right (as in the topo)? Or perhaps through the middle...
