an interesting flake feature right of fools gold. climb up to a spike then traverse left on to fools gold. it does get very interesting as you get higher!

first E5. I did the moves on top rope first then led it. Used rucksacks as crash pads. I have no experience of this grade but it might be soft? maybe E4? however if you muck up without pads you will break a leg. Fun moves, good route!

Came off below the flakes, but linked it on my 2nd attempt. would be a scary but doable lead...

Quite easy, doesn't seem to have a crux, I'm sure it will be a different story when I'm on lead

Started the day intending to climb Scare City, but bailed rapidly. Decided to work the starting moves and do this instead. TR a dozen times or so, until clean on a loose rope, before leading above a couple of pads. First E5 and first route I've properly worked on, so very satisfied!!

Dogged first section but got all of the moves clean eventually, not sure my fingertips can take linking them together, or my climbing ability! Traverse left and Fool's Gold easy

Some bloke said it was fine once you had the flake. I think it's e3 with pads. Is a worthwhile highball test piece in this fashion.

Shunted 3 times, then sent it. It felt so good on solo, without the shunt dragging me about, and no harness to carry. 4th E5

In fading light. I was too scared to lead it. I found the line left then right to the flakes easier than the flakes all the way.
