Topic - First E6..

johncoxmysteriously - on 20 Jan 2014
Earliest route to have been climbed now given E6, as opposed to the first route given E6.

I know we've had this conversation before, and IIRC the consensus is:-

Definitely not the 'traditional' Lord of the Flies (first route *given* E6, perhaps).

Avon routes from 1979 - Aardvark and maybe Lost Illusions with the original Spartan pegging.

Narcissus (1977?)

Desperate Dan and Slip 'n' Slide (1977 and even 1976, I think)?

Maybe Quiver (1974; think the guide says E5/6).

However, while climbing at Avon this Sunday I noticed a route there now given E6 and done even earlier (1972).

Anyone care to guess, without looking in the guide?
