Viaduct Wall* E2 5c

Rockfax Description
14m. The ever-dry wall under the arches gives a steep pitch with a couple of reachy moves and a precarious mantelshelf to reach easier gropund. © ROCKFAX

Went up and downclimbed the first few moves for a while working out the best way to get my hands up. Ended up cutting loose from the diagonal rail to get my feet high enough to reach the ledge.

I got hands on the big ledge. Wasn't in the right frame of mind to finish it off and wandered all the way over to the severe leftwards to downclimb. Nice boulder problem nonetheless.
Cake - Solo dnf - 05/May/13 with John Cooper

There must be a better sequence than the one I used as it felt harder than Honcho! Went direct to the diagonal rail from the jug under the sloper via a huge lock.

A real struggle to get the sequence at the start; having cold fingers didn't help
