Description:

Same start as Planet of the Apes and The Crack. After pulling the roof, don't traverse left to Planet of the Apes, and don't use the crack (as you would be doing The Crack then), but go straight up. 2 more big holes, a crimper, two finger pockets and then you're almost done.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

The way you should do Planet of the Apes. It's the more direct line.

5 out of 5 stars My favourite route on this wall.

Crux is not the roof, but a little further up. Heel hook the roof to please the crowd.
