Craig Davies has re-climbed Chris Doyle’s God of Small Men after Alex Mason broke a key hold off at the start. The remaining edge is smaller and lower, making the starting moves much tougher. It was also a key foothold so the upper section is now harder too. The line also lost the good right hand finger jug below the top recently.

Craig, who had made an impressive flash of the original version after it was first done, came straight back when news of the hold breakage spread. He soon sussed out a good, albeit burly sequence and dispatched the line, reckoning it is now 8A and similar to The Shield in difficulty. The roadside boulder is close to the Clogfaeni y Llŷs/Manou area - see page 559 in the new Mountain crags guide.
