Duncan Campbell 28 Feb, 2016 Sent Ground up. Amazing! For shorties the Rockover to the second chicken head is the crux for sure. Up high is tricky but steady (thanks for the beta Nath!) above a sea of pads. Very happy to do this as its been on the hitlist for a while!

David Slater ?Aug, 1994 Lead RP The early move across the pockets & chickenheads is the tendon-popping crux for shorties. No bed or Teddies below, but I was still a whimp for the decision to finally toprope (after several tries without). Exactly as easy (or hard!) as the direct start (which I tried and did on TR). 6c.
