Alan Cassidy repeated Happiness in Slavery after two short sessions on the climb in the space of a week. He had previously had one evening on the route in 2005, dismissing it as too hard at the time.

"The route is extremely difficult to give a route grade as it boils down to 7 moves. They are however the hardest 7 moves I've done on a route (for the moment) and weigh in around V10ish (felt a smidgin harder than Trigger Cut V10 which has a similar burlyness & initially working it I thought it felt like V11). For now I think the grade is right but I'll be better able to judge with more than just the one 8b+ in the bag; it would be great to see what others think once it has had a few more ascents."
