  <text id="318" class="text">A great boulder with some really fun climbs and a nice height. To get off ask your spotter to drag a pad round to the lowest point, down climb the slab and drop off. Named after the 2016 film and the discussions about grades had between the old veteran climber trying to make a come back and the up start trying to make his name. So hopefully they will see some ascents soon to end the debate.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;When heading into the saddle you should see it just in front of The Quick and The Dead wall.</text>
