Grade is very height-dependent, especially the start of the final wall which will be easy for people well over 180cm tall and desperate if much shorter than that.Originally started up first few metres of 'The Nude Balloon Dance' but now has a direct start and a bolt added to final wall (with permission of Phil Armstrong). Phil originally stormed up the final wall oblivious to the lack of protection after a major falling out with his climbing partner. Start midway between 'The Nude Balloon Dance' and 'Serpent' below a short incipient flake and FH.Up past FH to ledge, step left and then up right-tending ramp. to next ledge. Go up to steep, left-leading flake and follow this to below final wall. Past FH and up to ledge and traverse right to anchor of 'Serpent'.
