Depraved** E2 5c
[Depraved at St. Govan's Head, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A direct line up the wall between Tactician and Deranged - not quite as good as its neighbours but still very worthwhile. Start just right of Tactician and climb up a crack rightwards to meet Deranged. Follow this for 4m then step left and climb a groove to a ledge. Finish straight up the wall above. © ROCKFAX

E2 5c in guide and as hard/harder than deranged. Line is escapable and not very defined. Starting crack is hard, groove is techy and upper headwall is fingery and really fun although escapable up tactician.

Done on the wettest, greasiest day ever. Found the start hard then sustained and technical for the rest. A great route, just a bit overshadowed. Hard E2.
