Chris' first E2 - that 'counterintuitive' low heel hook beta, total red herring if you ask me.

Short people: use counterintuitive (but amazing) left heel hook when trying to reach for the crimp under the flake.

Hard for the short.

Got some 'good' microwires below the flake and went for it. Technical but very short-lived, maybe Hard E1?

Tough move off the ledge even being able to reach the flake, wouldn't seem worth stopping to place gear on lead

Managed to get three bits of gear in and one of them was bomber. Result! Moves are pretty steady and easy to read

Tangerine_Kingdom 16/Aug/13 Lead O/S

Too short to reach the flake, used some questionable heel hook beta. Also the lightest rack I've ever used, a single "00" blindly placed

Top rope solo, really tricky move to get off the ledge, managed it second go.

I'm sure this was easier last time i did it. Maybe it was the greasy conditions. Couldn't get anything worthwhile in the wire slot so suspect it may have worn out. The crux moves felt harder than anything on Edge Lane..

Hidden 19/May/13 Lead O/S
Graeme Hammond 08/May/13 Lead RP

Soloed previously to the top a few times from the big ledge with a tied off abseil rope (a shunt would be better?). One tricky move leaving the big ledge and a few more good moves and you are on the top, used a single small peanut which might have protected the crux. Worthwhile micro route.

The 5c-ish move off the mid-ledge is tricky, but get halfway through standing up and you'll realise the upper flake isn't as far away as you thought!
