On a whistle stop tour of the Beyond the Dome area of the Wavelength hillside in the Llanberis Pass, Pete Robins climbed the obvious sds into Tiger, Tiger. This went at a feisty 7A+ and is top notch.
Pete also managed to climb into The Wolf from a similar start at 7B. This is thought to be the unrepeated sds that Will Perrin climbed in 2001. Again, it climbs really well with a particularly funky foot manoeuvre to stall the barndoor as the main pinch is reached. The direct sds appears to be much harder and slightly pointless as it is only half a move to the right.
Quick repeats came from Ollie Cain who confirmed the grades and quality.
There will be some grade tweaks here for the new guide - the stand up version of Tiger, Tiger is worth 6C+ and The Wolf is worth 7A.
