Heroes* E2 5b
[Mother Careys Kitchen, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
An eliminate with some good climbing. Start as for Herod but move onto the wall on the left until forced back into Herod - all a bit pointless, but now things improve. Step left from the top of the crack and climb the wall and cracks direct to the top. © ROCKFAX

As per the definitive guide (where it's E2 5c), I approached the top cracks and wall direct via the corner on the right hand side of the block of Brazen Buttress: a logical line that makes much better sense than the 'pointless' meandering of the Rockfax version.

Approached the top crack direct along the right hand side of the block of brazen buttress. A far more direct and logical line.

Last route of a long week. Felt tiring and difficult to keep it independent but still good.
