12m. The direct start to Brandybuck. Start a metre or so right of Legolas, climb up to a green bulge, and lace horizontal cracks with gear. Make tenuous and bold moves through the bulge and up left to better holds on the short rib (wire in horizontal slot up left). Reach up right to gain the overhung crack of Brandybuck (the first really reliable gear) and climb it to the top.

For me, bold enough to warrant top-rope practice.

First ascent. I had estimated this as an E2 5b/5c, but after falling off from the crux moves on the first lead attempt, and narrowly missing both the tree and the ground (and Clare), I've raised the provisional grade to E3 5c. Feedback welcomed.
