[Edge Lane, 2 kb]18m. The magnificent sustained scalloped arete is unprotected where it matters although gear can be fiddled in the half-height bore holes. Not one for the faint of heart, because from the crux you will hit the ground, gear or not! Almost worth E5 5b! © ROCKFAX

First E5!!!! WOOOOOO
Stuart Honick - Lead RP - 16/Mar/14 with thomas Randal

Terrifyingly easy! Too much time to think about the situation so hardest part was controlling the adrenaline. Great SUMC support!

Daniel Heath - Solo rpt - 15/Sep/12

With Two pads. No one else wanted to climb so they said I should solo something. I set out just to "have a look" and kept going. 2 crux rockovers were fairly steady with good rests to think about the moves. The 3rd rockover felt pretty dodgy but at least there was a nice surprise on the right...

Calm, composed and scared all at the same time.
dan gibson - Solo O/S - 17/Jul/10 with michael porter

Fantastically atmospheric climbing. I found getting to the shot holes harder than the last couple of moves even though they were more precarious and far more dangerous. No pads.

Had belayed Ol and co previous to ascent. No top rope practice. Bought alien and tricam. Put sling on top "spike"! It's hard, but not that hard, I've certainly climbed alot harder.
