The Slurper* E1 5c

Rockfax Description
The right-hand of two cracks can be dirty. It eases rapidly after a tough start and leads to a possible stance on grassy ledges. Continue up the crack on the left to the top. If you split the pitch with a belay on the ledge then the top section is worth 5b. © ROCKFAX

Got on this accidently, planning on do 'easy action'. found it sustained, tough to place gear in the middle and hard but very well protected moves at the top. overall an interesting climb. couldn't find any ab tat so left some on a tree back and left from the top.

Very tough start which I blew on first attempt but gets a little easier after you reach the first ledge.

Couldn't lead the start, pulled on gear.

Hard start, possibly best done with a boulder matt to protect the first few moves instead of trying to place any gear before the first break. 2nd first pitch, led second.
Brannock - AltLd - 21/Aug/11

Cleaned route prior to leading so not on-sight. The route is well worth a look, especially now it's in good condition. Bit of care needed with the block on first pitch, really well protected throughout.
