Tearg Wall*** E2 5c
[Tearg Wall, 2 kb]12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. A superbly positioned climb taking the line of least resistance up the wall, the start can feel committing but the protection higher up is superb. Start up the short crack to reach a line of good but slightly rickety holds, move left then rock up with conviction to stand on a good ledge. Move right to a thin crack and follow this to a solid PR make a long pull past this, crux, to reach the top. © ROCKFAX

Superb. End is only really hard because the clipped peg obstructs the hold a bit!

rob 528 - Lead dog - 09/Jul/15

Peg for aid. Bit desperate for the vertically challenged. 6a at least
Ian Jones - 2nd dog - 04/Jul/15 with Robert Durran (aka 'Big Bob')

Psyched to get this OS! Solid gear all the way up. The rockover was great fun - fairly easy. Followed by steady moves and a great technical crux to reach the top. 3*.
adamre12 - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/15 with Natalia Wasielka

Brilliant route with excellent technical crux moves at the top moving to and past the peg (Bold until the peg is clipped).
gavinpeach - Lead O/S - 16/May/15 with Max Pendleton

Stoked to get this! Hard moves at the top and very happy to stick the move to the top edge

It's only E2 if you can clip the peg before committing to the crux. (I couldn't quite get it from the ledge, but could rock up a little to clip it then come down again before going for it.) Great sequence and overall a really good route.

A good route, but too cruxy for three stars.

paul79 - 2nd O/S - 24/Apr/11

Brilliant climbing, well worth three stars despite its relatively short length. A spicy feeling rockover low down and clipping the peg whilst mid-crux make for quality entertainment.

Superb final moves.
