Description:

Largest block left of 'Top of the Pops' formation. Starts easy then passes a small roof in which a pair of opposed stoppers gives some modicum of safety for the delicate and reachy crux move. Runout. See topo in Photos sxn

3 out of 5 stars Good uncrowded route

It actually protects pretty well- I slotted a blue alien, a green, alien AND a yellow alien in two separate cracks at the base of the roof and felt totally solid. Seemed at least 10b to me. I didn't dyno for anything though.

Followed Chris' on this as I wasn't too psyched on leading it. Very reachy for me; Chris dynoed it easily...
