Lovely route! Maybe E2 for the tall? Tricky step out to the arÍte and then pull! Feet slipped mid way through the move but fortunately managed to match and hold the nose. Big thanks to Henry for standing on belay while I muddled my way though my first E3.

climberchristy - Lead rpt - 13/Sep/14 with Ben Cole
Took a fall off the crux sequence couldn't get balance right so peeled off even with a hand on the arÍte. Pretty safe fall with a size zero friend in the pod by the lip. Pumpy, and not sure it's low in the grade at E3.

Rob went first then fell off and offered the lead to me. Decided to try and use his nails pebble beta but fell off and got rope whiplashed in the balls (ouch), decided at that point that I'd had enough with the route. Realised later that there was actually some OK holds in the roof that I just made not noticed at all with my tunnel vision making it quite a bit harder than it should have been, oh well one to tick clean on a future trip I guess.

Classic stuff, seemed fairly easy apart from the one move out from under the roof. Hard to see how this is given E3 in some guides given the good gear and single hard move but maybe feels different if you fall off?? Glad I didn't look at the photo in the Stanage 2007 guide first as it looks much harder that way?

Some 'very mixed up' people would refer to that as a retro-onsight, but I don't entertain such nonsense!
Was proper goey round the roof. The voice saying, "find some gear and a rest position" vs the one saying "do some hard moves quickly or fall off" :)

Pretty hard! Almost fell off this, oddly I found the bottom section pretty nails, but then the move out to the arete seemed massive. I got a cool little toe hook with my right foot, reached onto the good crimp under the roof, and then swang up and left to the arete grasping the good hold on it, then its all over once you've handled the barn-door. Don't think I'd dare do that move on lead, although I couldn't see any other way for someone of my size.

Masa completed his first E3.
About 3 of us tried to 2nd this but gave up after multiple falls and plenty of swinging around. Strangely (given Masa's height), we all found passing the 'crux zone', "far to reachy" and the move in between far to powerful!
Eventually Masa managed to pull someone else up behind him to retrieve all the gear.
