The best route in the gorge. Start at a diagonal borehole strike at head height. The climbing varies from dynamic lunges between jugs to sustained technical crimping and pocket pulling with a lactic-infused crux high up. Low in the grade.

I remember doing this in the early 90's and some holds crumbling on the last section. Was stiff 7b then, do easy 7b+ must be about right now.

I did this route again on Sunday. The route is in perfect condition and not crumbly at all. I will get around to cleaning off some of the neighbouring routes this week. There has been a lot of re-bolting and re-eqipping the belays in the gorge recently by John Elcock.
