Didn't stick to the arÍte after the first pull up above the crack. It felt like 5b all the same and was good. E1 this way for sure

Good to get, had backed off this one last year.
Jim Slater - Lead rpt - 29/Mar/14 with John Max

brilliant route only slightly hampered by its proximity to the decent route. If it wasnt for that i would give 3*, its all there on the slab for your feet with some nice little pinches on the arete. Previously lead but not logged

Not a true onsight as I had down climbed from the crux a few months ago. Felt on the cusp of E1/E2, if you stick to doing the crux on the left arete. I reckon if it feels soft your'e probably doing the crux of 'finger lickin good'. Good route.

stuck to the arete as per the guidebook and used a slopey mono thing for the right hand. felt very tough and E2 seeing the length of the run out and doing those moves spo high above the gear. stick to the arete and see it in its true glory :D
stvredmond - Lead - 29/Jul/11 with Darren Ross

Technical and would have been bold...

Made the reach to discover the hold was covered in slime so had to jump off. Big but safe fall.

quite contrived i followed the line of weakness and although run out to the point of effectively soloing the climbing is about 4c after the well protected crux. this is unless you go up the arete like the guy in the photo. which way well warrant E3
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 23/Jan/06 with Steve Ramsden

Soft at the grade despite Rockfax claiming otherwise. Unless I was better than I thought I was. People have told me that`s not possible though! ;-)
