The attractive rounded grooves at the top of the little ramp has a hard move in the middle and fine bridging above.
FA. M.Jones, G.Gibson 16.2.85. In 1990 many of the routes on this wall were bolted which caused little or no outrage at the time. However the following year the bolting of Captain Percival in particular caused one young man of Pen y Pass Youth Hostel to get very hot under the collar. He wrote to a number of magazines, "Take care lads because the time for agreement is over. As far as I am concerned your licence to bolt has been revoked!"
