Wanted to climb it all day then hesitated. Mike walked past and said its easier than Crescent Arete. Tried the first moves, racked up, persuaded Raj to belay and did it. No pads, so full E3 please.

Incredible. Couple of pads so not E3 but felt worthy of a couple of E's at the top! Technically easier than Crescent Arete but psychologically a lot harder. Turn off the brain, don't look down and keep going.

Top roped it ages ago like an absolute idiot. Amazing route, the fact that it's quite serious just adds to how absolutely brilliant it is and makes it that much more sweeter, three stars for sure.
BRoe - Lead rpt - 14/Jul/12 with whitehouse_rhys, Mark Roe
Wow. What a route! Amazing climbing, and a perfect line. Glad to finally do it.
Had a pad and a spot (thanks cameron!) but not convinced it would have made a difference. Really serious for E3 - if every E3 leader got on this the hospital would probably fill quickly.

Yes. Another route that's been on the list for as long as I've been climbing on grit. Very intense, I did a couple of moves up and down then went for it. I found I was concentrating so hard I didn't really consider anything other than success. It was nice to have some gear for the top even though it's much easier. A four star route.
