Brian H - Lead rpt - 20/Sep/15 with Martin Dunning

Hard and thin with decent enough gear. Great steady lead from Bob especially as he led it by mistake and thought he'd done an HVS variation! finished up doorpost.
George.Rowland - 2nd - 27/Jun/15 with Bob Peters

Had no intention of doing the eliminate. Must have gone this way when I followed Gerry Taylor up it in 2007. Nice link with top 2 pitches of doorpost.

I agree this route is E2 5b for most people. However, for the (very) shorties, this is E4 5c, as the last move in the hard section is a lot harder than any other moves, a definite 5c, for the shorts (whereas pointlessly easy for those with a normal reach) with a real decking potential. My 9-metres fall from there was miraculously stopped by a skyhook.
