Head back rightwards to a stance as for Euromess - a pumpy pitch. 2) 4c, 20m. Trend right up the slabby wall of the groove, past a tree and finish up the continuation groove above, exiting right. © ROCKFAX

A couple of interesting moves on the first pitch but not a great route.
Andrew Barker - 2nd - 01/Aug/11 with Cat Black

tried to do the second pitch of the e1 but who knows where it was suppose to go? went up the grove, couldn't find a flat hold, couldn't find many holds or gear and it was overrun by cobwebs and ivy so i went right to the hvs. think the photo topo for the e1 may be wrong, either way i wouldn't recommend either route!
