Ranadon*** E2 5b
[Me on Ranadon, 1st E2, 3 kb]15m.

Rockfax Description
16m. A fine climb, interesting and varied, with a well positioned finish. Climb the broad rib (good holds for the right hand) to the roof and make fingery moves to jugs which lead easily to the final roof. Once committed, it all falls nicely into place. © ROCKFAX

Pleased to get this one. First bulge a lot easier than it appears from the ground but nearly fluffed the moves into the top scoop!

1st time back at the crag for almost 30 years and climbs like this remind me as to why it has remained one of my favourite locations. A handful of cracking VS's done with Ollie in the slight drizzle then the sun finally came out for this one. Well worth our stop-off on the way back from a wet few days in Scotland.

utterly brilliant E2.... Did it twice it was that good!

Top route. Loved it. This and Audacity are worth the drive up by themselves. Bold start, great central juggy section and classy finish! Felt easy for the grade but you need to stay cool on the first half

Fantastic climbing. The crux was made harder due to poor rope work on my part. Rope drag ahoy!
