6b+, S2. A direct finish above the chimney of The Conger.
FA. Damian Cook (solo) 11.9.1990


The rock at the top is not as snappy as it used to be, thanks to those free-falling pioneers. More satisfying and photogenic than the original finish.

I did The Conger today for the first time in 18 years! I am wondering now whether on that previous occasion in 1986 Crispin Waddy mislead me (deliberately perhaps: hoping for some 'how high is too high' test data) into doing the Snap, Crackle, Pop finish. I remember being scared witless on steep biscuits, definitely different to the normal slab exit I did today. Not really sure enough to claim the FSA though.
