Deaf Dove* E2 5c
38m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
More pocket-pulling though fiercer than most hereabouts. Despite that, the route is quite low in the grade. Don't forget the threads. Climb the steep wall to the left of the shallow scoop, and directly above the stance, crossing a small bulge to join the last couple of moves of Central Wall. © ROCKFAX

really nice route that manages to pack a punch in its relatively modest length. Crux is pulling up off two very positive pockets for good holds that are a fair reach away. one thread in-situ which is bomber but plenty of good cam placements and other threads to be had. Still manages to feel sustained as the pockets, although positive are not spacious for the feet. surely worth two stars as the sequences are great.

A little close to other lines but perhaps worth another star!
