Start left of Archimedes Principle on right diagnalling crack. Belay at fixed nut and bolt. P2 climbs water streaks up and right through roof to chain anchors. Possible direct start (28) needs bolts... superb quality!

Oliver and I climbed the other routes on the wall (Pathagoris Therom and Archimedes Princilple) and decided to add The Alchemist. We thought chain anchors were a nice touch instead of tatty slings or a walk off. We would have done the direct start pitch had we more juice in the drill battery. A great line at about 28, someone should bolt it!
