Sinbad** E1 5b
38m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A very pleasant outing with lots of variety. Start at a V-groove in the buttress front. The start has the 5b move but the fantastic second pitch feels the harder of the two.
1) 5b, 18m. Thrutch up the groove to a crack (thread). Move left over a roof then right onto the face. Ascend a deep crack to the fault-line.
2) 5a, 20m. Gain the wall above and take a crack to a bulge. Pass this and climb slabs to a small exit-corner finishing rightwards. © ROCKFAX

tim.fairhall - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/15 with Sachi

Tim led it in 1 monster, arm destroying pitch. Great climbing all the way. The crux move pretty much straight off the ground is definitely 5c, lucky it is well protected. Moves higher are up are fairly sustained, gear is good with some really spicy 3d moves on the weird bulge/corner thing. ***

Cruised the 5b move but got pumped higher up on pitch 1. Lovely pitch but a little dusty. Second pitch was nails - good lead Brian!

surely one of the best (if not the best) E1s on the Ruckle. Brilliant, sustained, well-protected climbing on both pitches.
Different Steve - AltLd O/S - 26/Sep/10 with Guy Reid

Hidden - Lead O/S - 26/Sep/10

Bailed on the lead of P2 so ended up seconding both pitches. Nice route mind.
