20m. A rare problem (a Wilton slab - what else?). Climb the centre of the lower slab to the sandy break then continue up its centre passing a peg to enter the shallow groove spliting the upper face.

the stars refer to when it was clean!

The 'dilemma' refers to the high step up, can you open your legs wide enough. Lancashire humour.
John B - 01/Nov/02

No, the name doesn't refer to the high step-up. It'd not be fair to tell the tale here....

Bolder and better than 'Cameo' Fairly clean at the moment for a Wilton route.
Andy S - 16/Jul/03

Certainly bolder but not totally sure whether it is better. Still great climbing though; just keep your head about you and enjoy. Deserves a lot more traffic than it seems to get.
