Finishing right as per over the moors description makes for a nice well protected hvs/e1. I feel like e1-2 would be more suitable if you finish direct. Which is chossy and the peg looks rough! JimboWizbo - Lead RP - 18/Jul/14 with gaz

fun route. placed a cam in the first bvreak then had a unfun time getting to the flake to place gear. Scary step rightwards. Then loaded the flake with gear and spent a while figuring it out before going for it. Nasty topout.
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 23/Jul/12
Got most of the way through the flakes wider gap so about halfway? (without chalk sweating in the sun - not advisable!) Just wasn't happening for me that day! E2 5b rockfax

Guide book says E2, felt E2.
Olli-C - 2nd O/S - 01/Apr/12 with Rachel Slater
E2. Crux was pretty high above the last god nut and the holds were pretty slippy. Top out really dirty and scary too.

Probably a silly choice for a first E1 but was desperate to do an E1 whilst still aged 14 and this is our local crag, the day before my fifteenth birthday!

failed to commit to the move off the top of the flake, as it was getting a little dark. Set up a rope to retrieve gear and nick had no issues - found a sneaky foothold so I gave it a go with a torch - no real issues when you know where to find the hold!

Very sustained and pumpy. I wandered to the left a little near the top. Not sure I'm ready for the lead just yet. Soon though, soon.....

Good route, have tried it before, but lowered off as i couldnt commit to the moves. no such trouble this time, bomber nut just belew the crux gave me the confidence to commit i think. Very dirty topout.

Mostly good technical climbing, and well-protected. Last few moves not well-protected (as far as I could see!) and top-out almost outfoxed me...

put too much gear in?/ very dirty at topout, not really a slab but really good none the less
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/09 with Rob
Took a good sized whipper off the top of the slab. Pulled ropes and had a good rest before leading it clean. Felt hard and steeper than it looks. Top of flake took a bit of working out and the top out is manky. Excellent route though.

Sat on a wire trying to work out the top of the flake. Horrible seepage in the top break which made topping out feel bold!
metal arms - Lead dog - 01/Nov/08
either i totally couldn't figure out the 5b moves at the top, or it's a 5c? a pumpy lead and good fun to fall off.

Not too bad until I fell off when topping out and ended up 2/3rds of the way down the route.
Pulled through for another go but ended up resting after messing up a move halfway up. Note to self, if you are going to do a big step-up, take note of the foothold you are stepping from in case you have to step back onto it again.
