14m. The groove on the right leads to a break from where technical and strenuous moves (try a left-hand pinch) allow the wall to be climbed rapidly. Originally given a hard HVS. © Rockfax

Hard move, but right above bomber cams. Like the slab bit too
|Andrew Barker||12/Jul||Lead O/S||
A good crux sequence.
Tried this one once or twice before and failed to make it stick on the crux move. I'm happy to finally put a tick on this.
|Mark Grist||09/Jul||Lead RP||
One move wonder. Took me a few attempts to work it out.
Did this to try and start the year as I mean to go on
Only took three months to get on it
|David Kay||09/Apr/14||Lead O/S||
Went up to contemplate the crux move a couple of times before committing, not too bad once I got my feet in the right places.
Fell on first go. Hopefully this was due to having to belay myself through the crux.
Self belay. Very wet today. Got it clean second go. Can't wait to come back and lead.

Quite easy this time round.

Fell off try to get to the pinch. Got it 2nd go.

Piss when you don't miss the crucial hold!
One tricky blind move to get foot in the break. Easy when your foot goes in but failure to do so means you fall off and test the gear which is solid!
Did it differently to Joe in the end, left hand pinch, right hand crimp next to pinch, left foot into break under lip, up with right hand.
all went a bit sketchy when I forgot what to do mid crux. oops!
First go. First time clean.
|Rich Kirby||08/May/11||Lead O/S||
Did this really well, once I got the pinch and foot in the break the moves flew past me like a train. It was over before I knew it. Rain stopped play, I want another go though, soon.
Met Mike and Mike, tagged along with their ideas- found this really hard and right on the edge. Had watched it being led the day before, I am no-where near this yet.

good route with only 1 hard move. up & down twice after placing gear. felt really hard but have since found beta to make the move easier
felt hard and greasy today.
just about got this now, should probably get on the lead.
|Dan Lane||19/Mar/10||Lead RP||
Climbed upto the break, stuffed it with gear, down climbed, climbed up again, had a look at the next move, down climbed, went up again, and had to take. After a very short rest, did the crux. Came back about 30 mins later and did the route clean.
Attempted lead, t/r to retrieve gear. I now know the move over the break!
Interesting to see this is now E3 6a, maybe... It certainly felt well harder than any E2 I've done before. I'll be back.
nice strong move over the overlap provide the only real difficulty, 4c above and below this with what looks like bomber gear in the break. one to lead in the future.
|adam carless||11/May/08||TR RP||
tried to lead it (after SS back off). Eventually commited to the crux, totally fluffed it. So we set up a toprope to get the gear - did it first go. Bum. There will be a rematch.
Backed off the crux on lead then toproped to retrieve gear.
