Growl Tiger's Last Stand** E2 5c

Rockfax Description
Low in the grade and excellent. Start up the shallow awkward left-trending groove in the blunt arete to the overhang. Move right and power through the flake that splits the roof then continue up and left on flat holds to the lower-off on Zombie. © ROCKFAX

Did the crux roof easily then ran out of gas for the rest and departed on the head wall. Missed a crucial jug, easy when I got back on. Next time.

Quite a route to get my trad head back, after a few months of sport! Panicked a bit after the overlap after managing to fiddle in a few dodgy wires and running it out to the top!

Pete and I tried to do this on 4th July but someone plummeting from the lower off above and decking out rather got in the way. Fortunately the guy wasnt too badly hurt and survived to continue climbing. This ascent less eventful though Pete struggles

Do this after trying to lead Haste Not Tomato paste which in the end top rope - seems desperate for 5c (as graded in 1996)

A nice route with a bouldery crux and then another 10ft of hard climbing. No way is this near the difficulty of Darius!!
