Slid down to the bottom after my foot popped before getting it into the peg hole. Someone else did exactly the same almost straight after which made me feel a little better!
David Kay - Solo dnf - 22/Feb/14

First grit E3 and felt 6a for the short for sure! Ground up, fell once having committed to the initial rockover. Got back on it and did it. Amazing climbing and theres even gear if you want it- took all the pressure out of the final moves. Recommended, particularly if you are a stretch monster.

Ralphus - 2nd dog - 22/Jul/12 with Karl Gregory

My first E3 (and I've only done two E2s) - really pleased I did it. I was just about to solo it when Ralph said he'd like to second it and that I might as well get gear in the flake near the top since it's there - glad I listened (although the top is straight forward enough). I got a small cam in the shot-hole that was bomber if pulled to the right, unfortunately it fell out when pulled to the left (the way the route goes) - glad I didn't have to test it as it fell out when I got to the flake near the top.

Somerset swede basher - Lead O/S - 06/Jun/06 with John Sargeant

after 'streching' my anticipation to its length i finally felt comfy enough on the crimps to crank and get my foot in pocket, calm down, crank, and one last time and i was onto the flake and the home-stretch, at 5' 8" i found the best method was too step right to the little endge from the initial ledge this aids reaching the first right hand crimp, step back left and you can reach the left-hand crimp then pull away, i'd say sub 5' 7" and this would be a very different proposition
