mbradberry2008 - Lead O/S - 03/Aug/12 with Alex French

Had put this off for ages thinking it would be hard and bold but disappointingly easy and didn't feel bold either. Technically too easy and not sustained enough for E2, a bold HVS/E1 max. Direct start and no side runners.

Think I went a little further left than usual - bit scary!
Chris the Tall - Solo rpt - 19/Oct/07

Scary stuff - My 1st E2. Started getting the disco leg on the top slab after 'the move' so sprinted to the top before I had chance to freak out and fall. Really wouldn't want to fall off this one.

Awesome route, hard for the short to get over the bulge onto the upper slab. I'm 5'9 and felt a bit stretched. Benchmark E2 5a and I'd give it 3 stars. Far more worrying than sunset slab.
