so covered in lichen I didn't finish, go through the roof fine, but then just couldn't manage the traverse, even has I brushed it was I went.

Bloody nails at that grade! Had several goes at crux and finally backed off just for Sam to do it first go leaving me to contemplate my grit skills.

Onsight apart from a failed attempt about 20 years ago. Powerful moves but not tricky to the slot. Finish isn't as "easy" as the guide suggests, stays good and hard/scary from the roof onwards.

Hard for E1. Olly failed at the roof, then I went to do it instead and fell off the traverse above. It felt like a powerful lock-off that isnt far off 5c, followed by no decent rest at the slot and then a very thin traverse that isnt far off 5c either...and was alco covered in thick grey lichen :oS

Excellent :D thought the crux was the traverse which felt hard and thin and probably 5c, getting to the slot was easy by comparison.
