Snowball, so not extreme at all. Took a few goes to figure out how to get the feet right. Matt worked it out actually

V5 in the guide! Would have to agree. I found Crescent Arete Right Hand harder and more highball.

Snowballed, cool problem. Wonder what it is like without the snow?

Snow day.

Snowballed. Really tenuous movement, must be well sketchy in normal conditions!

3rd go I think, Snowball

Joe Costello 04/Apr/13 Sent

Snow and pads. Not that great really.

Snowball, safe as you like. Felt fine, after a couple of silly false starts.

6B+. A set of lovely moves

Jumped off a couple of times. steady away.

Not really an E4, more like a font 6C with a spooky landing. You'd have to be really unlucky to fall down the gap especially with a spotter. No snow or pads.

Pulled up and downa couple of times then got on it. Not to bad really, part of the circuit now.

never E4, even without pads you can hop back onto the boulder right up until you've finished rocking onto the slab.

Took a few goes pulling onto the starting holds before I stopped being a chicken and went for the sloper. No problems after that. A great little climb.
