Used the left arete...didn't really help! Still, happy to take 5b for my first E1 tick.

Mr first E1. Fell off a couple of times at first as found it a bit pumpy placing gear in the first two breaks, then sorted the beta, got off it and did it smoothly ground up. Straight forward once you know how!

Quite pumpy placing gear so climbed down after placing the gear to protect the crux. Led clean without using the arÍte for the 5c tick. Crimps on the face are just big enough to haul yourself up. Definitely a good first E1 as very well protected around crux.

No arete. Quite tough 1st part to be fair, using poor crimps and sloopers, gear good though and easier after that

good moves and solid gear for grade. no use of either arete.
Milne - Lead O/S - 16/Jun/09 with cooper
Got over the bulge with a struggle using the small crimp the blew the 5C by instinctively reaching for the arete! I'll take the 5B with the arete with a smile though. :-)
