[The Dies Iræ is a Latin poem of 57 lines in accentual (non-quantitative), rhymed, trochaic metre. Or, it's a cool E2., 3 kb]20m. Fine sustained face climbing through the bulges and thin crack above. Finish direct (maybe a bit loose, but much more satisfying) or traverse off left (along Alcasan). Top end of the grade. © ROCKFAX

Be aware, there's a large(ish)stone perched on the edge at the top. Was going to remove it on the way down but lowered off the route to the left and couldn't get back to it.

Ground up, first time i got flash pumped at the bulge and had to rest. Lowered off, pulled the ropes then did it. Quite sustained.

Foot popped off mangey smear reaching for undercut on left at overlap. Touched ground on rope stretch and had it clean second go so claiming ground up! Great sustained face climbing after the bulge and a touch bold up top.

Lead as a "warm up". Backed off after doing the hard stuff.. Too much sport. Quality route!

J.Wells - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/11 with Mark Rankine

Pretty much cruised this. A few stiff pulls to get to the break, fairly obvious moving through the bulge (just don't hang around), then an excellent balancy head wall. Slightly spoiled by a grotty finish but that's just the last few metres, otherwise the rock is pretty solid, so not sure the left hand finish makes much sense. Don't think this should be at the top of the Rockfax E2 graded list.
