Located on the west face of Blipvert Tower, this is a newer variation on some existing routes. It takes the line of red painted bolts up a steep and sustained technical face, along a right-trending seam, and then through a burly series of overlaps. At almost 35m long and with no rests in the last two thirds, this is a real pump fest.


18 draws! Bolted anchor (and last few bolts up the arete) shared with Green Machine.


Second bolt line from the right. Splits at the top and heads right.

In spite of the garish bolt paint, this is an incredible line. I started on the yellow bolts (technical crux?) and then joined the red ones to the top, with many falls and hangs in the relentless upper section.

Such a great climb! Pumped is an understatement!
