Bloodsucker* E2 5c
45m. Start just right of Oakover at the base of the slab. Ascend the slab direct on good positive holds until the base of a narrow ramp-line leading leftwards is reached. Follow this with increase difficulty until a long reach can be made into the wide crack of Hedera. Step up through the overhang into the upper groove system and follow this to the top, or layback up rightwards to finish as for Heartline. The groove has a tendency to attract ivy; this can be cleaned if encountered.

Fell on this a couple of years ago trying to bridge into damp corner. Today cruised up & through crux - then promptly placed foot carelessly & skidded off dampness despite having already done same moves on Hedera earlier! Cue much swearing, lowering, pulling of ropes & starting again. This time took great care to stretch past suspect section. So hardly the purest style - GU Rpt - but I'll take it to sign off on this bogey route!

A good route. Only one hard move which felt like 5b to me. So again E1 5b. Again it might because I'm climbing well. Dave also climbed this with one arm ha

First E2 second. Good fun!
BenPitt - 2nd - 27/Apr/13 with Evan Holdsworth

Crux seems to be on the HVS which isn't quite right. A Camalot 4 came in handy. This and Heartline appear to be at extreme opposite ends of the E2 range.
Dave Rumney - Lead - 07/Apr/13 with Tanya Milner, Sean Roberts

Took a whipper when I misread the crux. Still a bit dank in the slow-drying corner. Last gear ripped. Got it ok 2nd go - but found it very reachy for the short. First trad fall for a while: good for the character, but bad for the ribs (particularly when several of them are made of titanium!).

A one move wonder (reaching the crack of Hedera). The move up Hedera (HVS) was probably the next hardeet move
