Smoke ont' Watter** E1 6a
9m. A choice of boulder problem starts (both about 6a) leads to a ledge. An awkward and scary move up left gains a thin hanging crack, which leads more easily to the top. © ROCKFAX

Direct/left start today, (previously done right hand start as left was wet but bailed on the top as the snow melt was too bad 09/Apr/13) Top crack is no push over either. Good route worth a couple of stars as the BMC 2010 guide suggests.
Graeme Hammond - Lead rpt - 28/Apr/13 with Jim

Boulder problem start wasn't that bad, for me the hardest part was the crack at the end! Good fun stepping across to reach the crack though.

Ground up. Fell off the start a couple of times, as soon as you get the good hold it's ok. Definitely tough E1, I wouldn't complain at E2.

Did the RHS side start which means you can't get to the cam placement before standing up for the crack!
DanH9883 - Lead - 09/May/10 with Lee

Bouldered out the bottom section and got it on the fourth go, following the left hand variation. A suspect cam #2 in the break just left of the crack provided some reassurance for the precarious moves to gain the crack. Nice finish up the crack above a couple of bomber friends. Good, varied route, worth a couple of stars.
Misha - Lead RP - 17/Apr/10 with Tom

After eventually figuring out the start , placed a side runner to the right. Was hot , slippery and slimey. Didn't enjoy this one.
