Telli** E3 6a
[Pebble pulling power, 2 kb]10m.

Rockfax Description
Low in the grade and popular. The centre of the slab leads boldly to the break where a crucial mantel gains a standing position. A final difficult move up the pebbly slab remains. A right-hand variation is very inferior at E2 5c/6a depending on reach. © ROCKFAX

Nathanie1 - Lead O/S - 16/Nov/13 with Louise Hall

Third time I've been on this route. Glad to get it led clean today after working out a different sequence for top move which is definitely the crux (hard 6a)if you are short. My climbing partner Ben is much taller and he found the top move relatively easy but thought mantling the break was the crux. Also quite a tough unprotected move near the start. So overall a good value route that packs a lot of excellent climbing into a short distance. Brilliant route!

Gear in break certainly stops you from decking as I fell off near top 3 times before finally managing it. Pebble pulling on a slab.
tigertim - Lead RP - 17/Sep/10 with Alex Winter

Annoyingly fell off on the rockover move to get stood up on the break. Got it second go, though still not straightforward. From the break could reach both the good and the not so good pocket, couple of 5b/c moves to the top from there. Should really be E2 6a for me (just under 6') because the hard move is the rockover and that's well protected. Unfortunately Su could only get to the break. Stood up on it with some assistance from the rope but was nowhere near the pockets, so gave up.

But then how many people do a proper onsight without checking out the holds from the top or seeing photos of the baby bouncer setup? Never E3 (or 6a) if you are 6' but great moves all the same with an especially brill mantle. E1/E2 5c

Fun route, and yes definitely easier the taller you are, the break is not a good as you think it's going to be at some points! Mantle crux is well protected though, I had to thutch and wiggle to get the mantle sorted!

Did this on a windless day in summer. The midges were so insane I didn't really think about the moves too much! If your over 6ft (I'm 5'9) I imagine this would be easier than 6a.
