GLASS AXE E5 7a 7-8m.
The left facing groove just to the left of `N`Gauge`,very tricky!
F/A, Andy Woodward, (solo) summer of 86!
p.s. I believe the route can now be done by clipping the bolts on the next route,with a potential swing at the top if you fall, allthough obviously not E5 for that tick!
(drilled some lower offs holes above top of groove , will put in soon as)(06/12)

Thats great - it was a really fun climb and I enjoyed doing it without any idea of the grade, I just wanted to be able to log it on here. I figured it was probably 6a+ but it felt hard as it was my first outing on slate. Certainly not the last!
