[Nige on Twikker, 3 kb]28m. The right-hand side of the cave leads to the lip of the roof which is passed by powerful moves (stepping in from the ledge on the right is taboo at this grade) to access the upper slab. Pass the cave (seasonal Raven's nest) to the final crack which gives tenuous finger jamming to a grubby exit. © ROCKFAX

3rd go after falling off the crux...hard for E3. Fantastic route. One of the best around at the grade.
CJEFF - Lead RP - 14/Sep/13 with Jack

Great route, really varied climbing and some awesome moves. This is definitely a tough E3 though, there's a lot of hard moves and you really have to work for it!

the climbing isn't as hard as it looks, but placing the gear looked to be the crux.

Rachel Slater - 2nd O/S - 07/Sep/12 with Nigel Slater, Olli Crudge

Second time on this one after failing to do the crux (went round it) and the top overlap back in March 2009. Almost got the crux on the first go. Wasn't even that hard on the second go - should have had a rest before committing on the first go. Great sequence. Spent a long time at the overlap before I got it sussed - another nice sequence. Horrendous rope drag from the overlap as both ropes got stuck in the crack on the lip of the overhang, should have extended them further. Mark didn't follow. Abbing down for the gear was a bit of a pain as didn't get the ab line quite right.
Misha - Lead dog - 11/Aug/12 with Mark

Chickened out by hanging on the peg at the first overhang and being lowered down to the cave (then moved to Erb). I should have placed my own gear around there, really.
