The Sandman | E10 Trad climb

A similar line to GreatNess Wall but with a slightly more direct finish using some different holds. First ascenionist Franco Cookson described the line as follows:

I'd basically call this the 2nd ascent of Steve McClure's Greatness Wall, but will play it safe after The Prow [ed. Franco's ascent of this problem took a slightly different line to the FA which caused some controversy at the time]. I finish direct, using none of the same holds at the top and climbing in two moves what otherwise takes many more to the right. This is a bit harder than the original and I think was touted as a bit of a problem to be done by Nick Dixon. If you're tall and good, it doesn't add much. [1]
