Description:

Starts just right of Slimebelly Snakeass Sodhole Skunkpie. After doing clean aid through this section December 2007 and inspecting the two fixed Lost arrows on the route I would say they are fairly trustworthy; especially with a screamer attacted for good measure. In addition I think it could go for the free lead if solid protection in the form of small cams and nuts was placed ahead of time on aid.

4 out of 5 stars Clean Aid

Clean aid on hand-set knifeblades, cam & logan hooks, and an assortment of small cams. PG13 due to possibility of ground fall initially. If you aid this it would be helpful to have a spotter for the first three moves off the ground. The actual traverse is really straightforward though. Good confidence builder for pitched out aid climbing,
