Hi Angus, I climbed the FA from what may now be the 4th Marlene bolt then ran it out to the belay of Marlene passing an angle peg with the fingery crux just as you moved away from Marlene.But it was bolted there after but just a little spaced, so I gave permission for Neil Shepard to retro bolt, but the line is more to the left and perhaps a little easier. But i would suggest Neil may have bolted the better less eliminate line. Neil's line is a nice 7b+ and worth a pop! enjoy :)

Tony thanks for the help with that!

Mark thank you too! Managed to clip the chains on my second try of the route on Sunday with Amanda et al... Felt more like my style and just as enjoyable. I went via the new line of bolts btw... Had a go on marlena but having got straight the the marlene crack rapidly found out theres a bit of a sequence up that! New project!
