Very wet at the lower crux, then awesome moves all the way but it was all a bit much for me. Maybe next year?

With Darren. The crux section was so greasy. Bit gutted to fall. Pulled the ropes through and lead second go. The climbing is a dream after the greasy start.
Daniel Heath - Lead RP - 05/May/13
Mega chuffed to have done this one as it's been on the hitlist for a while. Found the bottom bit hard and a bit 'wiggy'. Hard to read the wavey rock and it's lack of friction doesn't help either. I found a really hard reachy move into good holds low down. Loved the top though; great, crimpy, technical climbing and no worries about decking! Psyched to get back down onto the west wall. Not a hard E4 but not a softie either IMO, I'd feel really shortchanged at E3 I think.

My first E4 - or is it just hard E3? I'll have the E4 for now! Wasn't expecting to get it onsight but decided to have a go anyway. Quite hard from the outset but well protected throughout. Relents somewhat in the middle but still not many moves easier than 5b, apart from an easy section going up to the big thread below the crux and the finishing groove. A perfect hands free rest below the crux meant that I could have a couple of goes at figuring out the crux before committing to it while still fairly fresh. Most moves were technical rather than physical and there were some good rests, which meant that I never got pumped and so the route proved to be easier than Pleasure Dome despite having harder climbing. One of my best climbing experiences so far - really felt like I had achieved something there.

felt harder than it should have done: start is however quite insecure, especially when damp. i think though i was suffering from my usual 'classic route anxiety syndrome' which didnt help. moves to pass upper bulge are lovely. sustained interest from the start and certainly, for me, felt E4. a superb and tricky pitch.
