What a great route! My second E4 onsight and what a belter! Protection is surprisingly good bearing in mind the guide calls it a 'classic gritstone frightener' and all of it can be placed from relatively comfortable positions' climberchristy - Lead O/S - 01/Jun/14 with Ben Cole

Awesome, first E4. So chuffed with this, mantel was hard but the move at the top from the good hold felt hard as well. Held it together topping out on slopey pinchey holds. Super pumped! Size 1 friend is the one you need!

One fall, one preplaced bit of gear. A tainted ascent but one I am very proud of since I couldn't do it on a top rope. Thanks bill
rurp - Lead - 12/Nov/13
fell off the mantel first go, quite a swing...nearly took out Will! Lowered, pulled the ropes and did the route 2nd go. The crux is the lower mantelshelf, found the upper crux easier than i expected.

A little apprehensive as hadn't climb grit or trad for a while but after backing off the mantle first go, went pretty easily. Top crux felt easy and pretty safe with a couple of small cams.
quiffhanger - Lead O/S - 20/Nov/11
Found the mantle easy, moving left took some time and then had placed the "crucial small friend" as my first runner so frigged some gear in the break and after an age went for it but fell...defiantly one to come back for!
wi11 - Lead dnf - 12/Nov/11 with Meg
First E4 and probably the best single pitch climb i've done. Very exciting moves at the top!!
roberto18 - Lead O/S - 16/Oct/11 with Dad (Mike Bridges)
Top lead by Rob!he literally ran up the 1st section and completed the mantlshelf on pure adrenaline!,suitably rested he cruised up the next section to the ledge,bit of gear in, then "went" for the top. his best onsight to date. I on the other hand struggled like mad on the mantleshelf,(just not supple enough)and was pumped for the next section,and glad to reach the ledge and a rest,then just managed to top out clean,fingers uncurling with every move.Great climb,4 stars.

Sweet move off the undercut but I think the mantelshelf near the start is the crux.
HamishD - Lead O/S - 13/Nov/10 with John Brannock
Been waiting for this one for a while. Classic climb and didn't think the pro was too bad. Found the mantle to be the single hardest move.
highlux - Lead O/S - 17/Oct/10
The crux rockover/mantel near the start took me two goes, the rest was just about ok, although I couldn't feel much and it was going dark. Really good route, good lead by Neil on a lot of small gear.

A brilliant route, been wanting to do this for years. I found the mantel the hardest bit but it felt well-protected. The finish was fine once I committed but I was a little worried by the gear in the break! Climbed the direct finish up the headwall.
