Very hight dependent, 1st move was easish if your short but move to the flat hold by the brake i had to pop for. Did it on my 3rd lead attempt. Not sure the last time I fell off an E1

Almost pumped out placing the second piece of gear. Great move after up to the break.
David Kay - Lead O/S - 02/May/12 with Ric Elliott

A little jump was needed for the first move. Top felt scary on lead, but really I was just being a wimp.

may have gone offroute by a couple of feet :-)and easier if your tall.
Ali.B - Lead O/S - 27/Jul/11

What a way to finish the day, enjoyed this thoroughly on lead and was quite confident making the moves, one of which was quite comitting - getting to the second break, well worth doing this one!
