Had an epic. Didn't place a second cam on the first section as felt confident with the move. Slipped decked out and hit the floor. Got back on the route and led it with a rest before the crux. Climbed the crux easily. Gear 0.5, 1 (first section), 3 (traverse), No. 3 walnut (crack), 2.5 cam (break), 2 cam. Left hand jam, right foot rock-over, reach for break at crux. Will go back and lead clean.

I can safely say I faffed on this route. Did the traverse, got my gear muddled & so reversed back to the areter. Then back out to the crux & pulled through. I thought the hardest bit was arranging the gear at the crux. The pull through just requires finding the good jam & then a gung ho approach.

a pumpy little number. the swing inducing traverse induced some terror too and i found myself hanging on a hastily placed cam in the horizonttal brake. bollocks.after hang dodding a while the crux didn't seem to bad. the two foot of snow at the top made the easier ground somewhat harrowing. great fun all in all.

I definitely felt this was harder than the E2s I've done, and deserves E2 5b for being sustained with good gear. Great route though, gutted to have not got it clean... Reversed the traverse twice to get a rest before going for for the crux move!

Shauna - 2nd dog - 25/Jul/08 with lowersharpnose
fairly tricky move past the initial bulge, then to the horizontal cracks which are very good. Stuffed loads of gear before heading out. Got to the crux, stupidly tried the rock up without placing the perfect nut placement in the obvious hole below the roof, failed it, too pumped to put gear in, fell, big swing, turned upside down, head about a foot away from a boulder. Wasn't wearing a helmet. Lucky to escape with just a few scrapes. The crux is quite hard. The initial horizontal break is very good, but the second is pretty rubbish and shallow.

Had a go at leading this a few years ago and came off the crux.No trouble this time, with left rope clipped to a boulder out left before setting off, to stop the big swing if i came off the traverse,it felt much safer.

Did the start and the traverse fine, then arms got tired, hands were sweaty, and I slipped off. Would have liked to get back on and finish it, but I'd fallen too far down to do that.

Should have got it really, had the numbest of numb hands and had a quick rest on the crux to warm them up. Traverse is the psychological crux for sure and as said above a green alien will go quite nicely in the hand holds. No need for in situ sling as cams fit in there perfectly. Just keep going once you get them in! Classic route though, well worth doing.
