[Bill Briggs on Inquisitor Stony Middleton 1970, 4 kb]20m. A popular route up the long flake on the left-hand side of the buttress. The lower wall is a bit thin, the bulge is a bit beefy and the upper groove is a bit wobbly. © ROCKFAX

too hard and too chossy to be E1

E2 for looseness. All over after the bulge if you can forget about the chossfest you're tottering up. Great entertainment watching Si manage to screw his loaf and battle up Wee Doris after this - a mighty lead.

Faffed about for too long placing extra gear as I didn't trust either of the in-situ pegs. E1 if you trust the pegs and tat, E2 if you don't.

Paused for a while on the undercut trying to figure out best way of going over the bulge but turned out to be easier than it looked, just needed to commit. Only really one 5c move and some 5b lower down so probably only E1. The groove above the bulge is pleasant VS climbing and not really loose.

hmmm, thinking closer to E2 for the bulge and wobbly bits but the top crack is fairly solid... especially if windhover is E2..

I would have said that the original grade of E2 was more accurate.
Brian Rodgers - 2nd O/S - 19/Sep/09 with Mike Todd

Loose rock and a stout pull over the bulge. (Also this day failed on london wall after ripping gear where pe used to be).
