Description:© (secretary)

This is the bolted line directly below Serpentine's first belay, and is one of three 15m bolted variants to 'Serpentine'. Some 'Serpentine' aspirants stick-clip their way up this to avoid doing Serpentine's first pitch!

Start: Start directly below the first belay of 'Serpentine'. 1 FH below the Lawrence of Arabia break, then a few more FHs up the faint arete above before joining Serpentine's first pitch for the last 10m to the belay (25m rap). It is reportedly feasible, but hard - feel free to put it out of its misery.
