The Big Easy** 6a+
[Big easy dws 2, 1 kb]21m. 6a+, S0. The approach traverse to the following routes is a great outing in its own right. The wall to the arete is the crux. Once the arete is rounded, steep juggy moves lead past ever-more impressive ground. Continue as far as you like and then retrace your steps back again, or swim. © ROCKFAX

Fell off round the corner, after the arete then tried Ixtlan sopping wet and backed off from half way up. Then reversed the hard move on The Big Easy (probably harder) and escaped up the arete.

Not sure which bit of this is 5c? The traverse is delicate but all there and I did the jug fest the other side footless ;o)
Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH - Solo rpt - 19/Aug/06

very nice and easier than spittle and spume (less necky as well as the traverse is the crux)
Wilbur - Solo O/S - 06/Aug/06

an excellent solo....the difficulties are down low.
