Bise-Mon-Cul** E2 5c
[Carlos manteling past the tube whilst seconding Bise-Mon-Cul, 3 kb]25m. Direct start to looning the tube, gain access to the lower slab through the tight squeeze tunnel, or the higher easier access tunnels, scramble up to below the main wall along side the easy angled slab, move left after a big bloc, to a bolt belay and stance. Climb towards the looning crack, passing three bolt runners, crux passing the third.

Top route, definitely deserves more traffic! Bolts in just the right place and all of the main holds are solid, just a bit flaky in the bottom (easy) bit now.

Quality climbing and well bolted. Some more traffic would do it some good in terms of cleaning up flaky holds.

Suited my style, seemed much easier than 5a's and 5b's tried earlier in the week! Could be getting back into climbing though

A really worthwhile variation start to Looning. A little snappy but a good pitch.

Nice, still a bit dirty at the bottom but will clear up. Good small crimping.

Pulled a hold off just before the first bolt and almost ended up following it down the slab below. Watching this, my belayer was very glad he was anchored in! Despite this 'hiccup', I still agree that this makes a better start to the crack than the original, especially seeing as you use the tube more.

Better than the original start, cool route! Little soft for E2, but probably just about there.

Fantastic if a little sharp. Started as low as could go for the direct start, though about using what looked like a bolted belay, but started at the ledge below the first bolt all the way up.

A much tougher and technical start to the route above, very nice,

Rory Shaw - 2011

Bolts are close together an seems like a sport route
Rob Evans - Lead O/S - 2011

Good route, will be really nice after some more traffic! Lead into 'zzzooming' making a cool route with a good halfway rest.
sam820 - Lead O/S - 25/Jul/10 with Chi

Enjoyable climb, Not to sure on the E2. Came across the expected lose slate since it's new. Can see it becoming a very popular climb.

unclipped first bolt from looning and climbed down and seconded this. quite sustained till you get to the looning crack.
