8m. A serious undertaking up the exposed rib. The crux involves a technical stretch for slopers and the finish is the stuff of nightmares. All the pockets are worse than they look, with one (just) taking a small camming device. Start from a block in the gully, or direct via a bouldery 6c move.

Complete gem of a route, beautiful moves. One of my favourites. (Actually called Black Eyed Dog)

this is totally clean and ball-bearing free at the moment (Nov 2005) and does not require any wirebrushing (ever), even though it looks green...
