Description 

Well if anyone else ever climbed it they didn't admit it. I had fun climbing this dirty slightly loose corner. The route is right between Pulse and Flatline following the crack up the corner and making a crux pull out the overhang to the right of the crux of Pulse. There is a cool kneebar on this move which makes the route deserving of one star in my opinion, haha. anyway, i didn't have a brush with me but i'll give it a quick cleaning at some point if i get the chance. Not that anyone will care cause if you like this kind of climb, the filth is half the fun.

Lee do you use the anchors of the route to the left for this climb?

yup, with a good solid directional of course... i would have used a tree but the anchors make it so easy to get down i just did that instead...

Thanks Lee, I plan on getting on this soon any words of advice, encouragement, discouragement?

well matt, the reason i did the route is that i saw a cool knee bar at the lip so you should look for it... i think its all safe but there might be a little loose stuff on top so just be careful of where the rope runs...

im psyched you are getting on some trad stuff at rumney, not enough people do... PS, have you checked out Suicide Kings yet?

Easy lead up to the top section. I didn't think to kneebar, but enjoyed the top crux move anyways. I clipped the Pulse anchors before slinging the tree above the Low Voltage top out. After cleaning, I walked around to the top (via the ramp to the right of Flatline) and grabbed my sling.

Lee, finally got around to getting on this. I thought it was very fun with a cool crux. The crux is burly for 5.7 but I do think that grade is appropriate. Good find Lee! I will do this again for sure when I am up at Pulse!

Nice , glad you enjoyed! i think if that was on top of a bigger wall it would be a classic top out :)

I should check out mountain project more! I was only given half the story when I suggested climbing this yesterday. I was told that you (Lee) were the only person known to have climbed it and that it was loose and dirty and not worth climbing! Now I can't wait to get back up there and give it a try!
