Brittle when wet
Variety! The famous HB dyno route as immortalized by Simon Carter's photos in the early 1990s. Take a full rack up to #2.5Fr, including Aliens, RPs, and sling runners (and/or double ropes) to minimise drag.
Start: Start as for 'Sirocco'.
35m (27) A great series of features. Follow pitch 1 of 'Sirocco' to the horizontal. Swing R along this to tricky white corner and gain slab (FH). Trend R and up technical slab and finally the infamous big dyno between buckets (battered FH), to lower-off (25m, but a 60m rope barely reaches if it's still through all the gear so tie a knot in the end).
35m 32. The daunting beautiful red wall above to a rap anchor at the top. Yet another contender for the best pitch on the wall. Renamed Orange Desire by Quentin.
First Ascent: Malcolm Matheson (pitch 1), 1990
First Ascent: Quentin Chastagnier, 2013
