Quiet Waters Direct** E3 5c
[Neil Ireson enjoying the flowers and Quiet Waters, Huntsman's leap Pembroke., 4 kb]

Rockfax Description
Originally this route started in the same place as Magazine People, but it is much better to start at the arete just left of Shape-Up (or the slab just left with a thread at 6a). This gives a good enjoyable pitch at a more even grade. From the top of the arete make tricky moves up onto a ramp, then continue to reach a traverse line under the roof which is passed by puzzling moves on its left-hand side. © ROCKFAX

Maybe I went wrong but I found this hard and bold in places. And not that good, except the very top which had nice moves which felt nicely bold and was at least dry!
Mark Warnett - Lead O/S - May/15 with Princess Diana

Dropped a wire so lowered to the ground to retrieve it. Then dropped my nut key and couldn't face climbing the starting moves a third time so left the nut key for the next tide to swallow.

Felt slightly bold for a couple of moves but overall fairly steady. Hard E2 or easy E3?

i thought this was simply brilliant! my first route in the Leap. sustained with tricky gear all the way and a sting in the tail. felt more serious than it should have done. i think this is fair at E3.

Hidden - 2nd rpt - 05/May/08

Great route though more like E3 than E2, a couple of the 5c moves are quite far above gear.
