Has anyone climbed Grim Reaper at Swanage lately? E1 is pushing my grade a bit, but had a real epic on second pitch last Saturday as after the rather committing traverse left from the worrying stance, I found myself pulling off loads of loose rock, and having to use wobbly holds to do crux-like moves. Got so tired with all the loose rock pulling ad generally faffing about that I lobbed off on the final steep move fortunately onto 2 bomber cams - very scary as most gear below had fallen out. Not many comments on the route description, but none make much of it. Any other experiences there?

Not climbed it recently but I vaguely remembered 'typical for Swanage' ! once you grind to a halt on that steep stuff and start thinking too much about it too much it generally all goes wrong :-)

We were thinking of doing this on Sunday, but elected to get spanked on Koo-Koo instead.

Not much help really, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone could tell me how to do the crux of K-K.
