Found this tough but really good and satisfying to get back into the E3s. Start felt a bit bold and very wet but soft sandy landing. Then really sustained and the crux for me was past the peg when i was nearly off, but i think i used a crap sequence.

Did as an escape after backing off Minotaur, some nice moves but easy for 6a and needs a clean. Started up Beast as lower crack seeping lots...

Billg - Lead O/S - Aug/09 with Megan Beaumont

nice climbing slightly spoilt by top section ie completely overgrown necessitating a traverse left to exit via top of Shape Up. low down this feels eliminate and v escapable - you can virtually step into Beast... at any point but it soon sorts itself out with some nice moves left under the roof. 'easy' for E3 with difficulties being short-lived, not sure if its really 6a.

Felt tougher than expected, but it's basically OK.
