<< M1 < Mad Max  |  Delta-G > Entropy >>

A worthwhile companion to Delta-G with some extending moves between spaced gear. Slightly marred by the crucial chipped holds. From the peg in the groove of Delta-G stretch left for a handy slot. Pull around and make hard moves up the wall to a poor rest in the scoop of Mad Max. Make a fluttery move up to the break (peg with thread). Then tackle the roofs above with a hard move past a bolt to gain easier ground above. From a thread trend right for the cleanest finish.

The 'rest' in the scoop is only relative, its certainly not a good one! There are two bolts in the scoop and a peg (not a bolt) after the fluttery bit at the top of the scoop with some tat on it. The bolt above the roof requires a long sling on it at this grade unless you are tall. The thread above the roof was replaced in July 2003. On the top wall, it is better to trend right from this thread as there is less grass (recently cleaned up a bit - July 2003).

I thought this was better than TalesOYP, with some awesome pocket yarding and an exciting, powerful roof. The scoop is not a real rest i agree; though at least your arms aren't getting pumped. I managed to clip the bolt over the roof fine, and am under 5'9.
