Description:© (Ashy)

One of the classic test piece 26's in the mountains that keeps you working from start to finish. A burly, awkward move gets you off the deck and established onto the flake. The technical crux now follows which involves a gnarly fingery traverse to the right. Before you rest on your laurels, 'Super Weak', like all good climbs has the dreaded "linkage crux" lurking somewhere beyond the technical crux. Now make a quick dash for the mid height rest before the pump spits you off. Having sufficiently recovered, head straight up the wall past another tricky section where you must weigh up the pros and cons of clipping the dogging bolt. Just to put the icing on the cake, the finish requires an unnerving balency move to lean back and reach up to clip the anchors. Having put your heart and soul into ticking this absolute ripper you would think you deserved at least a 27 for the effort.
