Peckling Fever 5c

Originally trad at E1 5b, it became a bit easier after rock broke off above the overhang.

Collected Callum's gear which somehow managed to be on the finishing bolts of both this and the next door 6a route.

Some confusion about the correct lower-off to use since it seemed to be harder than a 5+ move.

Not sure on the finish, but I took the right hand top bolt and chickened out. lol

Started up Peckling fever and finished off on the left hand finish of senter home. Seems the more obvious line.

Nice route except I got the wrong top out, couldn't get the last bolt. Was later advised that Peckling Fever finishes on the left

Excellent climb but tricky move is at the top and had nothing left to get over the overhang...didn't want to escape off left or right so took me a few goes to get it....would like to try again with fresh arms (and more technique (-:)

very undergraded ..especialy top overhang beware ... which is ridiculous for grade .. long bolt distance =really needs some lower bolts ..take some gear with you...

first ascent had to be called off part way due to sudden heavy rain. Not a great route - could do with an extra bolt on the slab section, or go quite far left onto easy ground.

Lower_off is, rather than a "clip a cows-tail and thread your rope through", a single-clip snapgate that doesn't snap shut of its own accord. The bolts and chain to which this snapgate is attached, do not allow for a more "reassuring" threading. I was happy to lower off on it, maybe it just needs a dab of WD40, but it might confuse novice sport leaders who are expecting the "textbook" lower-offs

Nasty bouldery start (took quite a few attempts to get started), but after that not a bad climb. Not sure where we went off-route, but it got a bit hard near the end.
