Median Lucky* E1 5b
[Lou, 3 kb]26m.

Rockfax Description
A hybrid pitch providing one of the best ways up the left-hand wall of the quarry. Gear is spaced. Start on a small bushy ledge, 7m up and left of a small tree at the base of the crag.
26m. Climb a shallow groove-system to a small triangular overhang at 8m. Move up its right-hand side and up to a peg. Traverse 5m left and step up to a short diagonal crack. Move up right and follow a narrow groove to a peg where it fades. Pull out left and up on small holds and finish up easy but earthy ground. © ROCKFAX

Really good!

Great route felt soft for E1 but then again if the old pegs fail you would be in a bit of a mess!

Thought provoking move to clip second high peg, good rock through out.

Brilliant climbing, and the gear where you want it but reaching the first peg is balancy. Best climbed as one pitch.

Low in the grade difficulty wise though may be ahrd if this is your limit due to a long runout above 1st peg until the next one, got a poor cam in but nothing else. Steady climbing though, with a couple of tricky moves leaving the 2nd peg. Nice climbing though.
