Solution Pollution E1 5b

Rockfax Description
Short, but not without interest. Start left of the ivy and climb the steep pocketed wall until forced right into The Spider. Finish up this, or bale from one of the lower-offs. © ROCKFAX

Total sandbag but a decent route. 5c moves to get over the initial bulge followed by a bit of a respite before more 5c moves over the top bulge. This was protected by two manky threads, so felt like a bold E3. If replaced, it would still be a hard E2. Worth doing. Have backed up the upper lower off with 6mm cord but would be good to get a rope on it. The first lower off you get to is total mank, should have cut it down.

Massively underrated and hence dirty. Get on it.
