A classic route with beautiful moves, climbing the right side of the prow. Originally a top-rope problem, Richard Thomson hand-drilled a bolt in 1988 and climbed the route with natural gear and a rest – eliminated by Roger Parkyn who named the route Padded Cell. Retrobolted, reclimbed and renamed by Richard Thomson in 2001.
