A classic, up an awesome line on decent holds for the most part. Low-(ish) in the grade. Start direct (Dance Direction) to the break, the original came from the left. Pull away to a poor rest below the final roof then crank this to the top. Either reverse and lower off from the last bolt or scratch up the slope to a tree.
FFA. Tim Freeman 1984. Led with one rest by Dominic Lee in 1980,FA. (as Nemesis) Graham West, Barry Roberts 1959,FA. (Dance Direction) Steve Earnshaw, Mark Shearer 1990


The original line finished with a shimmy to the right at the top. I redpointed the route with direct start and direct finish 6+ years ago. It must have seemed easier than moving right.

very bottom end 7b+. Fully retro bolted. clip last bolt step right pull up to jugs over the lip and then jump off (not as bad as it sounds). Much less hassle than grassy finish.

Probably only 7b if the hands off kneebar rest at mid height is used!
