A true classic of its genre - Hard. We didn't quite manage Neb Direct but the two 5c cracks on the The Neb itself were both desperate in their own right. I did both after taking over from Dave on the first but fell off the second crack on my first try. Your average face climber would be in dire straits.

First pitch was fine but really struggled on the top pitches

First pitch was delicate, but good. Second and third pitches were brutal! Clean on first pitch only.

Wanted to do neb direct. Found p1 difficult for route finding. P2 crack 1 went OK, crack 2 was sopping wet with running water. Tried really hard anyway because I could see the roof crack was dry and really wanted clean ascent. Chalk was more like tooth paste though, and I fell off onto gear. Used gear to aid second crack. Finished normal route- traverse under roof was scary.

Beautiful P1. Both short cracks demand some respect - tricky. Very good indeed. Direct version looks interesting...

E2. Went to try neb direct but it was really dark under roof as sun had set so quickly finished up neb. Wicked first pitch and fierce cracks above.

Went to do Neb Direct but it started to rain part way through - probably for the best because it looks 'ARD!
