Completely forgotten, Doctor Epic ascends a nice section of stone between Pump-O-Rama and Rendez-Spew. Scramble up to the first bolt and then cast into a sequence of large moves on generous holds. At the huge roof, throw in a contorted kneebar, and grunt thru a series of flaring vertical seams until you are forced to dyno out of the kneebar for a huge jug. Shake out, then weave your way through a section of natural weaknesses to a pumpy headwall- where a hard final clip and a tricky exit await your burning forearms.

A 60m rope should easily get you to the ground. Expect some rope drag.


11 quickdraws, the anchors have carabiners.

It shouldn't be completely forgotten. It's a really nice route and one that got away from me back in the heyday of the Arsenal development. Kudos to Steve for a good eye.
