The Last Light** E1 5b
[F.A. The last light, newtondale, loose!, 1 kb]10m. The free version of 'A strenuos roof' and the hardest route in the woods so far. Start directly beneath the large roof capping the creeping butress, climb up directly to an insitu thread (recently placed 2012) and further gear. Make strenous above this to a jug on the front of the roof. From hear, make a 'campus' move to the top tree, and pull for dear life. "It was almost dark and I contemplated giving up, but then, a cloud shifted and the last light of the sunset shone through the trees. I had one last chance. I went for it, making the strenous moves untill hanging on the edge of the roof with one arm. I found another crimp, and made a sort of 'campus' move up to the top. Fantastic!

F.A. YES!! My first E1 new route, and a pretty scary one to onsight! The gear looks good and will probably hold, thought the rock is not brilliant. When the last light came, I knew I had one shot at it. Amazing positions.
