Bingo Wall* E2 5b
[Debbie on Bingo Wall, 3 kb]2 pitches. The direct line through the eye is a fine route when clean and dry. 1) 5b, 18m. Passing the eye is tricky. Many abseil from the tree, but it is worth investigating further... 2) 4c, 10m. The cherty holds on the well-protected upper wall. © ROCKFAX

Went up and left from the eye per Rockfax topos and it's the obvious way to go. Got a semi juggy side pull, left foot up, then... stranded! Couldn't stand up or get the other foot up. Couldn't easily reverse either. Eventually tried getting the other foot up, lost balance and fell off upside down, went a fair way. Falling off an E2, how embarrassing! Back up, skipped over to the small ledge by the tree and mantled direct from there, which was tricky 5b and similarly above and to the side from the gear. That felt right for the grade. So I reckon the Rockfax topo is wrong or else it's a sandbag as it sure wasn't 5b the way I tried it first! Enjoyable headwall.

Good climbing although didnt feel anywhere near E2. Mid E1? one 5b move with good gear then a nice top wall up to the tree.

Lower half definately the crux, upper half good steady climbing. Solid gear throughout...Upper wall much much better than it looks with loads of gear and holds.

Interesting crux move. Found the upper wall is also worth doing.
