Rattler* E1 5b
36m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A dominating groove line in a strenuous old style.
1) 5b, 18m. Climb the groove past a big flake, then climb through a break in the bulge above to a good ledge at the fault-line.
2) 5a, 18m. Follow the groove past a huge, dubious block and continue to the top. The block is the size of a Mini, and has no visible means of attachment, but is still there - feeling lucky? © ROCKFAX

As one pitch, 50m ropes just long enough. Made a right hash of the crux, with some desperate jamming and attempted back and footing - definitely not the way to do it!

Led P1. Tricky moves off the ground to gain the groove and a pumpy crux that eventually succumbed to sheer bloody-mindedness.

Exited the climb to the left of the hanging block by mistake - loose as hell. Should have followed the topo!
