Praise be for Wild Country Superlight Rocks !!! 3 bombers in the crack. The move up above to the break was thin. My foot skittered but I managed to slap and hold on.

You can get a good wire in before the crux, but it is only a micro.

A mean difficult to protect route.

OK-ish nuts in the crack, easy once reached the break above.

One stupid fall, the key move is actually quite easy. Trying to speed up before the rain came down.
perfectlynormalbeast - 2nd dog - 04/Oct/09 with Rich Lines

Dom Whillans - 20/Sep/09 with a.crook

Felt like HVS - good gear where it counts, crux move went fairly easily (being tall helps).

After a month without climbing, I decided to warm up on an E1, becuase it looked like a great line. It was. A delicate crux section above a "bomber microwire!" . Reaaly pleased with the lead.

Definitely not fun for the short - a couple of pretty sketchy moves needed before the "smile" comes within reach. Good enough gear though if you don't mind tiny nuts.

One move at the top really.. plenty of gear in crack, none of it bomber but maybe one piece would hold?

Did this as a less scary-looking alternative to the main target of Counts Buttress. Found the crux moves pretty hard and the highest nuts not quite as good as I'd have liked them to be. Surprised to see it given HVS in some guides.
