Rockfax Description
A superb climb up the blank groove. Many people's first Extreme which is odd as it isn't that easy. Passing the bulge is awkward and leads to the tenuous crux; protection is good but fiddly. © Rockfax

Jumped on this today, but the bottom was quite wet- resulting in really wet shoes. Just as going over the bulge, my foot slipped off and I fell- unfortunately the nut I had in under the bulge ripped and I decked! Very painful, but the only damaged thing was my pride and a slightly bruised arse.

bottom holds wet. One fall from just above bulge onto bomber purple cam just under its tip - stopped 2m from ground. Got straight back on and finished. Very thin for hands on top section, and tricky gear so foolishly pressed on. Got a green totem in the break (thank God!), but climbing was much easier from there on. Need to be more careful!!

Fell off the bottom section a couple of times, once I got up that bit I threw a wobbler trying to get my right foot on during the bridging section. Turns out that your first lead on grit after 3 months away from it probably shouldn't be an E1 requiring faith in Friction!

Borrowed gear, lead to past the half way point and got a massive attack of disco legs! After two falls and one broken cam (one of the wires pinged off) I lowered off to let Andy top out the lead. In all it is a great climb and I found the difficult start OK with a hand jam in a vertical slot and then the climbing is engaging but was a little too intimidating for me in a lead setting. When I seconded Andy up it afterwards it was not a problem - need to work on my head game!

Extremely harrowing even on the Shunt! No real rest anywhere. Tough moves on barely adequate holds introduce you to the final slab and the crux. A crucial pebble on the left wall is all you have for a left foot hold. The right foot is held on the slab with 'faith' alone. A precarious stretch using the left hand in the finger layback slot in the crack to a tiny finger gaston for the right higher in the crack and a poor crimp on the left wall for the left hand. Use these to smear up and reach for a poor large pocket with the right hand. From here salvation is close as the crack widens above. Hard from start to finish. Proper E1!

Almost did as my first E1 last year but was wet, Thank god for that. Not a good first Extreme. Fell onto a micro cam on the second to last move. Found the whole ordeal rather stress full. The gear placements and he holds are often the same thing. I don't get why everyone loves it, thought it was fidley and awkward (that probably just my bad technique)

So happy to get this clean onsight! First E1. Wasn't even planning to look at it but Clisty suggested checking it out, which unsurprisingly led to an attempt. Although there isn't too much gear, what you do get is good. Personally I preferred nuts, the placements are good, didn't use any cams. The crux is actually a step higher than you think - gaining the bulge is fine - getting fully established to make the move up to the big pocket is the tricky bit. Once you reach the pocket it's all over. Nice, thought provoking and delicate moves. If there was one more good bit of gear just above the bulge I would say it was HVS but, as it is, seems just about E1.

Great little route. Bouldery bottom section to a rest and decent enough gear. Passed the bulge and placed several small cams. Rearranged my feet so I could stand up and place a small nut in the upper crack. Pumped calves so reversed down to the good rest. Then went for it, Bridging is the way. Placed another nut in the upper crack.

Bottom section ringing wet. First E1. Now i'm a real climber. Get your feet right and there's a full hands off rest to place the last bit of gear.

Coaching with Adrian Berry. Drizzle. What was I thinking - my 1st E1 - and it was wet! Seepage at the bottom through the starting moves, but suprised myself by being quite bold to the 1st protection at the bludge! Two falls trying to get through the bulge, and a worrying slip near the top. Mental note to head back and clean the route in the dry! Absolutely worth 3 stars ... a fantastic "trust your feet" climb!
