Description 

The name given in the spirit also of She's a Moaner - trad girls (1 on first ever lead) on an adjacent line to us were looking really good.

The line takes the natural seam to climber's right of Roof Bypass and stays right of the sport line & anchor for some spicy face climbing & a couple of finger locks, then joins up with Roof Bypass at the end, belay was rope around boulder & a cam, walk off as with other routes.

If you split it up into two pitches by moving left and use the sport anchor, you miss the fun cruxy moves.


Location 

The line takes the natural seam to climber's right of Roof Bypass and stays right of the sport line & anchor.

We checked with everyone we knew over the past season about this line; no-one has indicated a climb on it. It's just a fun, spicy, trad line.


Protection 

Varied pro to 3" & no bolts, with a couple of spicy sections including the crux, 50+M (we used 60M rope).

This is a great rack route! Stopping at the bolt anchor takes the spicy crux out.

Sorry to hear that but hmmm... I led through what I thought was the crux, placed a piece high in the last crack (just below the anchor ledge for Roof Bypass), then made a rather exciting traverse to the bolted anchor. Definitely wouldn't want to traverse low, up and left, using the last bolt of TtYS. :-P
