Capability Brown E2 5b
25m. Death Wish Area: The first significant bit of rock you see on the R on entering the West End is a steep, cracked, brown wall R of a distinctive snaking arete. Start in the middle of the brown wall (just R of RIP Keef ...) below some flowstone formations. Climb these and move up R to the first crack. Go L along this and reach for the next crack; then go back R (no bridging R onto the subsidiary wall). Rock over leftwards to reach crimps high on the wall and use these to gain a suspect flake and ledges. Move R up the ramp and climb left-slanting cracks in the OH wall; then finish easily up the arete.

Didn't do the rock over, couldn't see how it would go. None of the gear is to strenuous to place and it's pretty good so should of gone for it.

Clipped thorns back and tidied up some loose bits.

Crimps are still there, and seem solid. The moves to reach and then use them felt hard today. Top end 5b, nearly 5c.

Placed hex in slot moved up and didn't find the crimp, I did find a crystal side crimp which failed, enthusiastically.

good moves with one stiff pull. easy when the crimp is chalked although can see how if it wasn't it would be harder

First ascent. Hard to onsight: if you don't locate the crimps quickly the moves may feel like 5c. Now I've said that, the second ascentionist will probably waltz up it and pronounce it E1 5b.
