The seldom climbed, often neglected, not really classic route that lies in the shadow of the indomitable Mr. Slate. Just to the right of Slate is a line of bolts ascending to the top of the tower. Another one of those routes that you climb so you can say yeah, I've done that. Expect some dirty holds.


Accessed from the same ledge as Popeye, the start is probably R due to the fact that if you blow the first clip you'll probably take a bit of a tumble.
