Located on the southern side of the West Penguin, 'Stem Cell Research' (F.A Em Holland, Bruce Bindner, Dave Daly (Jan 2009) takes a striking line up the narrow buttress, passing 9 bolts along the way. The route combines steep friction, elegant stemming, technical sequences and wild face moves all the way to the top (95 feet), making it a fine addition to the A-Hills sport climbing collection. The route is also equipped with a 2-bolt Mussey hook anchor. A fine winter route with plenty of warm sunshine. Enjoy!
