confusion reigns with this one -E2. Consudes with jump a block initially. Definitely harder thatn the other E1s I did that day but not E2
shoulders - Lead O/S - 18/Apr/14 with dai

Not quite the warm up I wanted, but glad I didn't fall off.
Martin Bagshaw - Lead O/S - 25/Aug/13 with Rafal Malczyk

According to Rockfax's guidebook this route was only HVS,5a. We found it really difficult though.

Real battle with this one from start to finish, not E3 by a long way. More like E1 as the moves are tricky and there isn't one decent rest.
Ed morris - Lead O/S - 05/May/10 with james

Never E3, more like HVS if you come in from the groove on the right
