I agree with Rockfax about the grade E1 5c ... tough
Calum Wadsworth - Lead O/S - 28/Sep/13 with Ben T

My first E1 lead so it will always have a special place. Feels technical and strenuous at the same time. Crux is not as expected.
mapperley samurai - Lead O/S - 17/Jul/13 with David Alcock

Took a couple of fifteen footers trying to get onto the desperate ledge. Pulled ropes and Kevin led - great effort. Lovely little route - get it while it's dry. P.s. if this is hvs 5b then Congo Corner is vs 5a!

First proper fall and first E attempt. Placed my yellow cam just before the mantel shelf, went for the ledge then found myself hanging by my rope half way down the climb, probably took 2m in total. Tried it again just couldn't get the move so left it to John.

Took one drop trying to get established on the mantel. Thought id best try the route as it was actually dry and cleanish for a change.
