  • Description 

    This is a sustained and technical route- it looks like a real gem from the ground, and for a limestone slab I'd say it's semi-precious. It is tenuous and insecure for most of its 50 ft. There may only be 3 holds on the whole thing! The crux is at the 3rd bolt- climb a ways right of the bolt line to slap up the sloping ramp. The rock on this wall reminds me of that in the Merciless Onslaught/Something Wild area of Cannabis crag. This smooth and minimally textured rock offers surprisingly little for your feet. The routes weaves and shamefully flirts a little too close with the corner to the left in the middle section. It also can feel like it is coated in a fine dust/ lichen (despite brushing) that makes friction troublesome. Despite all the above talk bemoaning it's lack of perfection, this route will truly make you proud if you send. It requires a lot of focus for only 50 ft of climbing! Hard and sustained for 12c.

    Location 

    This route is found 6 feet right of the obvious bolted right facing corner Tank Trap.

    Protection 

    6 bolts to chain anchors.

    Should have got on Inky, I hear that's the best route on the crag. No dust on that one.
