Exiting the thin crack is harder than it looks, the wires are tricky to place and the finish is pretty pumpy. It's good though! © ROCKFAX

This is really tricky for the grade. Awkward. Never really lets you rest. Footholds very lichenous and dirty. Sat on to gear today trying to work out the top moves which are hard to read. Too hot and tired at end of day. However, pulled ropes and led clean ground up after a rest. Foot slipped on lichen grabbing for the top but managed to hold on and scramble over!

Second attempt at climbing E2, was awesome! Couldn't get over the top, making excuses about it being slightly damp and all that.

Excellent, dogged first attempt but re-led (placing gear again) by head torch at the end of the night.

Good cams, but you have to commit at the top.

A boiling day on the Costa del Curbar, not really ideal for grit climbing. The crack was fairly steady until the top few moves. Moved up to the undercut, didn't like it and tried to reverse down to the rest, which was a mistake as it was quite hard to reverse and I peeled off. Went for it the second time round and it wasn't that hard to move past the undercut. The finishing moves on the other hand proved to be quite testing - unhelpful slopers leading to some heather. Eventually managed to find some slightly juggier slopers on which it was possible to pull out. Really annoying as I hadn't failed to do an E2 clean for a long time. Unfortunately Su couldn't figure out the start and gave up, so ended up abbing it.

One hard move and a bit of pump at the top. Slipped off carelessly, gutted to miss the onsight. Ah well.
