Not a great shot of Crimp City


In order to maintain the grade you must stay on the face and not wander onto the very tempting looking corner to your right. Fairly sustained for the first 30', with the crux maybe being 15' up.


Right of Castle Grey Skull, just left of the right corner of the south face.


1 bolt has been placed near the start, but nothing higher up and no place for trad. For now top roping this route is recommended.

This sounds like a TR variation to a lead route called "He-Man Slab (5.10b) which climbs past the bolt into the obvious corner/crack.

Oh okay. I wondered where the route was supposed to go. Opted for the harder looking option.
