Mani* E1 5b

Rockfax Description
Climb the wall just to the right of the scooped hole. Tricky moves at mid-height can be reachy. Above, it is just a matter of finding the right holds. Requires care to protect adequately. © ROCKFAX

Fell off crux again but then managed clean ground up ascent. Need to do crux facing right. Very technical move, warrants 5c.

Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 17/Jun/12 with Richard Williams

Really good route but quite tough. Backed off (downclimbed), then duncan had a go. He placed some more gear which reassured me, came down. I committed to the crux. hard, glad for the gear in the break. Blind, pumpy top wall. Ace
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 10/Jun/12 with Duncan

Hidden - Lead O/S - 19/May/12

Nails hard! Central crux would have been fine if the side pull in the vertical crack was a reasonabale hold! gear felt iffy all the way up, thankfully gear in first break held for fall from crux on o/s attempt. Climbed ground up on second go.

Martin Haworth - Lead O/S - 20/Nov/09 with Tony

Looked easy from the ground. Jumped on and found possibly the hardest crux iv'e done on trad + the fact I never really managed to get a bomber placement in and ran out the pumpy end, It turned out top end trad for me. Excellent!

Only just enough good gear and a hard to read finish. The top break was muddy and the topout felt hard (classic Stoney mantel) and was a fair way above the gear. Felt more like E2 5b to me.

Some pretty worrying blind moves. Very unclear about exactly where the line goes, strictly following the guidebook dotted line seems to involve a few bits of 5c climbing.
adam carless - 2nd O/S - 25/Aug/07 with Nick Smith - UKC
