Pearls** E2 5c
[Pearls (chatsworth), 3 kb]13m.

Rockfax Description
A great route that strings you along, with every move a little harder than the last one! Cracks in the side-wall lead to small runners from where thin moves reach the crest, leaving only a tough rounded mantelshelf to glory. © ROCKFAX

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 03/May/13

Amazing route, 1st e2 of the year. Didn't have the perfect size wire because I'd placed it below. Lovely route

debbie roberts - 2nd - 13/Sep/12 with Marti999

Cool, and really pretty safe. Tricky mantel at the top
Cake - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/12 with Matt

Gradually gets harder but with excellent gear for the crux even if it is near/below your feet (those who can't find the excellent size 2/3? runner below the more obvious poor top runner need to look harder!!) The rounded finish isn't easy but isn't as desperate either.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 26/Sep/11 with Richard Williams

Felt very technical and thin at the top, must be hard to keep your bottle on lead, with only marginal gear by your feet.
msoldn - 2nd β - 25/Sep/11 with Sam

went to lead, bottled last 2 moves, head in wrong place.

Nice climbing
Misha - 2nd O/S - 21/May/11 with Ian W, Brian

Horrible finish...but that's gritstone! Rest was nice and felt very different to the rest of the crag.

Really pleased with this, faffed for a bit by the poor final gear (I didnt have the right size nut) before committing to the moves above it; it felt good to top out. Great moves too.

Steadily harder moves, as described, but lead sucessfully at first attempt. Unable to get up it on a toprope a few years later...
