A combination of two old routes which used the huge block (which now lies under the wall). This new line follows the corner all the way to the top, fingery and slippery crux at the start and joining The Cardinal to finish.
FA. (Actress) Richard Davies 1985. The Bishop used the block to gain the right-hand arete which it followed to the top. The Actress was a direct start to The Cardinal which tackled the block as well.


The huge block has been moved. How or why is a mystery.

Very dirty for the first 5 metres - otherwise would be a nice line.

The start is clean enough now - nice route; tough starting moves and then pleasantly sustained above. Worth a star.
