Moribund** E3 6a

Rockfax Description
Climb past the left edge of the overlap to a break, swing right and stretch past pockets to another break. A hard pull gains a flake on the left and easier ground. Probably 5c for the tall. © ROCKFAX

Tried this about 2 weeks ago and rested on gear having struggled because I couldn't see into the break above the crux. Did clean, ground-up repeat today. Definitely hard for the short. Feels a good 6a if short though E3 probably still fair as pro is good and never that run out.

pumped crazy at second break traversed to the right

First E3 attempt in 2ys. Got as far as the sloper above the RH pocket a few times but basically bottled it. Essentially safe though and one to come back to.

Fell off pulling on Pocket. Then got besotted with it and eventually managed to hang the break with a pop. Placed a cam blindly as i couldn't see into the break so i couldn't trust it so escaped right, to see it was good. Great move really good fun for me, bit like a Peak 'Atomic'.

two rests on the rope - the first and main crux each took me two goes. Quite pleased with performance really though, no long rests and it was hard. Really good lead by Neil - his first proper E3 onsight for about 3 years.

Fell off crux.
Oli - Lead dnf - 16/Sep/08 with Wil Treasure

Got to the second break (hard), placed friends blind but didnt have the confidence to finish. Will try with left hand in pocket next time.

Felt OK this time round.
kingholmesy - Lead rpt - 2008 with SteveOc

Got it after trying a few months ago. Definately better to get the obvious pocket with the left hand!
sam8oy - Lead O/S - 22/Sep/07 with John

Fell off twice at the slopers in the second break. Will get it next time though!!!

Pete Graham - Lead - 2007 with Malcolm Scott

made it as far as matching horrendous slopey holds just after the pockets before falling off (twice). Felt absolutely desperate though apparently better to get pocket with left hand. Maybe try again when colder.
