Slender Loris*** E4 6a
[Slender Loris, 2 kb]25m. Another superb route which regularly stops people near the top. Follow Doubting Thomas to the old bolt then step left to a small roof. Pull through this to a ramp which is followed to a break (peg on right). Reach up to another break (peg and screaming fore-arms). Make one last move to gain the top. © ROCKFAX

Got on the right route this time. Got a bit pumped on the slopey breaks at the top.

Bulls Crack - Lead O/S - 1993 with AM

Was supposed to be my first E3 lead - my mates only told me afterwards it had recently been upgraded to E4. My first E1 (Whinstone Churchill, Crag Lough was upgraded to E2). My wife commented that, it this trend continued, I could sit in the armchair at home and end up having led E6! Incredibly pumpy and I admit to dogging the final moves from Ron Fawcett's peg in the break,
