OS the finish bit. Doesn't feel any harder than LW if you aren't pumped.

Onsight for top bit - have done Left Wall original route before. Direct finish is well protected and not much harder.

bede.west 23/Jun Lead O/S

felt good at the end of left wall so went direct up the "true-er" line. improves the route, nice to see it makes it a grade harder to, it does add to it :). Really please to get this ticked before leaving Bangor and uni... :')

Looked at escaping out right and finishing the normal way this time but it didn't look as good so continued straight up. Great route.

Quite sustained. i found it difficult to recover after the crux traverse and had to rest on the rope to retrieve gear and work the final few moves.

Hard until you find the pockets which make it much essayer than trying to fingerlock the crack

Not much harder than the original, but still harder than most E2's I've been on! Superb route though and probably better than the normal finish. Felt great to be out trad climbing in the sun again after 4 months of rain. Have definitely lost some fitness!

Better than the Left Wall finish. Incredible climb.

jacobjlloyd 06/Jul/13 Lead dog

fluffed the last move, disco legged off the foothold. I am never going to get over the frustration, falling off the warm-up

Found out I had (unintentionally) done the direct finish when I got back to the ledge! Maybe should read the description next time! Brilliant pitch, with climbing getting more difficult the higher you get!

Never been up the direct finish. Not really much worse than the main crack. Perhaps better than the original.

I felt quite rusty, particularly my head was awful, but I was pleased to have managed to flash it. It was not easy but never desperate. Superb route! I did not mean to do this direct finish, but just ended up. Definitely this is the more natural line than the original!

really great climbing! i was plannin on just doing left wall but saw the direct finish an thought it looked like better climbing, than escaping off left on the jugs. so thought what the hell and went 4 it.

finish of True Grip - adds another 5b move onto the top of Left Wall (maybe E3 5c if you're short)
