hard - I'd vote E3 and that's with tape gloves

11/31. Feeling tired and demoralised after discovering my sandwiches had been eaten by the sheep. Fell, pulled the rope, clean next try. Tricky crux in the middle then desperate struggle to get out past the boulder (as expected). It sure has character.

11 on Staffordshire nose. Really good. Bit of a thrash getting out from the roof.

much easier when taped up! Grade seems right.
Did all 15 Roaches brown and whillans routes in day.

But Soph exited through the cave so better go back! E1!! Taping up was a really good idea.

Should be at least E3 6a if you exit out the left !
probably the best fun i have had on a route for a while! Steep sustained jamming and the finale is amazing!
3 stars and HARDER than Ramshaw crack! thats E4 !
A must for all crack fans

Nievely thought three years since I last tried it might have improved my prospects. Got eaten alive again. Very hard work despite the no hands rest halfway. Unfortunately I seem to have forgotten the pain already so will probably be back

Fell from first crux on first attempt then started again only to find more difficulties higher up! Awkward, difficult, strenuous, green and very hard to read. Comments about this being the hardest E1 anywhere are well justified, I was mumbling E3 after cursing and udging my way through the horrific finish. Really should have read who did the first ascent before getting on this....

Onsighted up to the top of the crack then fell off twice trying to exit leftwards under the boulder, was too exhausted for a third try and exited up through the hole instead, which is easy (and a more sensible line, but I suppose less in-keeping with the difficulty).

Wow. Proper hard going. Probably one of the hardest E1 onsights i've managed to pull off (in same vein as The Vice). Bloody top section going left out from that boulder was reet out there at the outskirts of 'Lost it City'. Somehow (i've no idea by this point what was keeping me on) managed to stretch a foot to the salvation of ledge waaay out left and stay on to top out. Grazed elbows, bruised shoulder, worn through knees and green smeared face all in attendance!

Hardest E1 in the world. Full stop. Not helped by a handhold snapping off low down, resulting in a bit of a nasty inverting fall, but the top half of the wall is still steeeep, jams not that great, and getting out from under the capping boulder is a nightmare. Pretty cool route though.

Its been a long time since such effort has been required. Refrained from swearing as much as I normally do in this type of situation...relentless difficulty, done many e2's/e3's easier than I found this. An enjoyable experience on second. Well led Pete.
