After the Gold-rush*** E1 5b
[Three star zawn climbing on Guernsey, 2 kb]23m. Follow the short vertical crack from the RH end of the big ledge at the RH end of the 'Hades' wall to a LW trending ramp (crux). Follow this to a vertical groove (excellent). If the tide is in you could abseil into the bottom of the groove and climb this at VS 5a ***

Hmm, 5c moves above a leg-breaking fall between boulders. Is that really E1? Maybe I missed something at the start but it felt stiff! Still engaging up the ramp and then a nice romp up the upper groove.

Very hard starting moves, fell off my first couple of attempts. (Shouldn't have listened to the beta as what I was originally inclined to try was what worked.) Fairly pleasant after that, although with more jamming that I had realised I was getting myself in for.

I agree, start seems stiff. Good route though. Psyched for next year.

Crux was desperate in trainers and took a couple of goes! The top groove was OK though.

Tricky crux low down, for which a friend can be backed up by a higher good small wire placement.
