Historic photo.Paul Ross on the first ascent of The Horror variation in 1966.Starts from the top of the first pitch of Haste Not. From the large block on the left  of the photo after two pitons were used that expanded the block(later fell off after a free ascent by Ron Fawcett at a very high grade), then from the top loose piton a lasso was made with a 1/4" sling  over the roof onto what turned out to be just a small flat projection.The photo shows Ross committed on this sling with a no return option.The move over the roof was eventually compleated and his second Peter Myers followed in  gathering darkness . A more easy second pitch up a fine wall above got them to the top of the crag. Photo Peter Myers.
