Specimen Hunter* E5 6b

Rockfax Description
A slightly easier method of climbing the wall which gives good technical climbing. From the third thread on Magazine People, make some fingery moves rightwards (good but hard-earned wires) to reach a ramp. Move back left over the bulge (as for Magazine People) then step right under a roof. A hard move over this gains the upper slab and the top. © ROCKFAX

Gary Gibson - 2015

Very hard and sustained moves intially on the face. Clean right util the last move on the overlap; fell off as I got the sequence wrong.

With Darren. Super techy face climbing. The first moves off the deck were scary. Exciting journey out from the peg, hard to read climbing on tiny crimps/monos/sidepulls. I went too far under the roof which made the last move easier. Darren said it wasn't the hardest move. E5 maybe?
Daniel Heath - Lead O/S - 05/May/13

one fall at final overlap, cocked up the sequence. will be back to lead this.

Maybe E5? Quite hard and sustained. Threads replaced in May 09, currently good. Lots of RP's and small wires.
