40m. The best climb on the Left Wing, with magnificent moves and few rests. From the right-hand end of the ledge, move up rightwards to a big flake (as for Yellow BR). Climb the right-hand side of the flake (peg) using a thin crack to gain a hole in the break. Climb up and right from the hole and follow a line leftwards past a flake to finish slightly more easily, eventually reaching grassy ground. Beep, E5 6a - continue traversing right along the break until a hard move can be made direct into the upper groove of M1. © ROCKFAX

Took a sit moving out of the layback on the right hand side of the flake as I tried to pull onto the face. Very pumped from faffing too much with the gear and grabbed the bloody quickdraw again! Must get braver and be confident in making objective decisions about achieving relative safety meaning you can climb til you fall off again Matt! First E4 I have got on this year though so pleased to have just made the decision to have got off the ground on one again. Finished up A6 it appears which I traversed into from the final break and then topped out direct.
