Against All Odds | E5 Trad climb at Wilton 2

Also known as Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster and 'S' shaped groove.

The line was originally going to be called Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, but, thinking it was gibberish Ian Lonsdale objected, decrying such a silly name for a last great problem. While scrolling through the jukebox looking for a better name they came up the song Against All Odds by Phil Collins. Little did Ian realise that the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is a drink from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who's effects are likened to

having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.
