Zoolookologie** E5 6a

Rockfax Description
A full-body work-out with reasonable gear. Start easily as for Theory of Everything then take the big cracks to the right up the steep wall (thread) pulling over a bulge to a ledge. An easy groove leads to the top. © ROCKFAX

Plenty of gear to back-up the in-situ.

Amazing route. Very intimidating/overhanging. Abbed in during a hailstorm adding to the adventure. Tat is looking pretty poor but can be backed up. Unassumingly goey through all the steepness. We preplaced a belay rope which took a while to locate and made access tricky. I'd recommend taking a solid belay on the lip of the steepness, then doing a relatively solid 5m pitch to the top ledge to then skirt out left around the mud/choss wall. As good as Lean Machine with the crux right where you want it.

Well done Alex, my neck hurt belaying this one, this was steep!! What an adventure, hailing whilst abbing into an E5 over the big sea is never a comforting feeling! I did my best but ran out of juice, the holds weren't exactly jugs either with very awkward finger jams.
