Narcissus*** E6 6b
[Toying with balance on Narcissus, 2 kb]18m. The blunt arete of the Pinnacle is increasingly taxing, with the crux a worrying height off the ground! Easier with padding but graded for an ascent without. Finish up or down Valkyrie. © ROCKFAX

Ground up above pads. Great fun.
willackers - Solo - 06/Mar/11 with Ginger Chris

Highballed ground-up with 3 pads, after tryin it without any last year - grateful for them. Makes the establishing part of the crux safe but wouldnt want to fluff the reach up to the crack and beyond. Approx V5/6 very highball problem, classic!
Mike Goldthorp - Solo RP - 03/Mar/11 with Steve Ramsden

well padded ground up. took quite a few goes and plummets to find a sequence.
Ram MkiV - Solo - 27/Jan/11 with sam & ed

Ground up. Took ages to get my feet right for a balancy but not powerfull reach
edinbed - Solo - 03/Nov/10

Had a go at a (padless) solo but wind was coming strong from left to right and really throwing me, couldnt commit. Will persevere.

2 or 3 falls. Had loads of pads. Still not without interest. Felt terrible after drinking, should have manned up.
