This one may have been climbed before but i cleaned a good bit of moss off of it... I have only done the stand start which was fun but not too challenging... The sit start will go at a much harder grade and will be more fun i think...

Climb the middle of the slab/low angle face avoiding the escape to the arete out right... delicate climbing on tiny holds...


If you are facing the Mrs. Lovett cave turn around and the problem climbs the middle of the slab in front of you...

The moss is winning again on this one...

Could be a decent little climb, but unlikely that it will ever see enough traffic to keep the moss at bay.

some friends and i climbed it a few weeks ago during a night session and found it still climbed quite well... though it is a little green ;)

Great climb! Moss is a problem, but it is totally still doable. Way better than the arrow at the same grade.
