Rockfax Description
A great classic, mild at the grade but thrilling. Start as for Billiard Buttress to the deep break then move right for 3m. Step up and right to reach the blunt arete. Balance up to reach a large shallow pocket and use this to gain a scoop and easier rock trending left. Originally led with a single chockstone runner in the big break. © Rockfax

First 'proper proper' E1. Felt fine, and a satisfying route. Last move to vegetated break was quite committing but easy, and crux was a little trickier but well protected. Would be much easier for tall people I expect. Ran the top out, but no very good gear anyway and easy climbing.

Lovely route!!! Last climb after a full day of climbing, arms didn't like the start very much, found the first part quite bold, especially one of the moves where I had no choice but to trust my dodgy finger tendon - asked Ange to "watch me" before realising I had no gear in, happy to reach the break. Didn't find the top bit too bad, think my reach helped a lot - felt more like 5a (if you're tall)?

Bertbee 01/Aug/13 Lead O/S

Pleased with this - first E1 back after taking a hospital-worthy whipper 4 weeks ago. Nice to have my head back! Soft for E1, but deserves it for the bold start. Well protected thereafter with more placements than you have cams. No real need for protection after the so-called crux, but I got an unnecessary 1.5 3cu somewhere up there. Having to face up to the fact that if I want to consolidate E1, I can't keep climbing soft E1's!

This is a bit soft for an E1, but is excellent fun. Well protected at the crux, but no gear after that. Would definitely be easier if could reach (I'm 5' 4") the 'eye' pocket (at the crux) from the break. However, a not-too-bad intermediate move (as described by 'Batt' in his notes) should enable most shorties to get up without having to anything spectacular.

Pocket's not an easy reach for the short! Use right hand foot flake, low right hand underpull round arete, left foot in pocket. Move right hand to side pull above. Edge right foot up reach for pocket with left, push off with right hand and match on pocket. Get right foot up. Phew.

Coaching day with Adrian Berry. First proper E1 lead on sight. Didn't feel too bad as the harder bit is well protected, definately low end of the grade.

run out at the top. Crux is a bit of a 'reach up and grab whatever you can', which is all very slopey. But crux is protected. Use twins, as there's a traverse.

Scary above the gear- and on the precarious arete- but awesome moves and a fantastic route!
