Thought I was climbing a HVS until just before the crux Doug tells us it's actually the E2 variation. Still, great climb!

Terrifying and character building! Very worth while to get back on top with head game!

Hardest Trad Lead to date. Better than Solstice. Bomber gear untill the run out top bit. Ran out the Direct finish. excellent route

Seconded with dan some time last year was good to lead. the starts probably the hardest bit to be honest
JamesWilliams - Lead rpt - 02/May/14 with Dan Hale

Lovely climbing, nice and harrowing (character building) in the upper section with some delightful 'slow me down' gear. Probably hard 5b/soft 5c, and far more fun than Solstice.

Seconded Ben on this a while ago. Decided to lead it today, great finishing moves but not hard-a few snappy/ hollow gear placements which you wouldn't want to test perhaps justify the E2 grade.

In no way is this 5c not even hard 5b!
Andy Peak 1 - Lead - 10/Apr/13 with Will

Freezing cold, literatly. Hot aches in toes and hands. Slipped at the bottom before the 5c bit.
