Sixty feet left of The Sub and just before the cobbled block in the path is a severely overhanging cave with a route starting right off the trail.
Launch up with a series of no-foot campus moves to shag the first draw, or stick clip the second bolt. Between bolts one and two is the crux, which is still causing me some serious dog points (as Andre The Giant said, "I don't understand why you are causing me so much trouble". It must be the feet). From a large, square cut, grey cobble, set the feet for a big reach to an undercling pinch. This is followed by a series of reaches on good cobbles and corners to get the second clip. Pull over the lip, grab a chill, and get ready to rock with great moves, more cobbles, and one more roof.
This a very commendable problem on acceptable stone with great gear. The rock still sheds a bit of surface debris, but this is not a major distraction. Overall, this is an excellent line with a steep and bouldery opening. Kudos, lads!
Eight draws and a rope.
