Any Which Way*** E2 5b
[Opening moves on Any Which Way, 3 kb]17m. A mini-classic that climbs the line of thin rightward-leaning cracks up the tallest section of the wall. Move up to the wide break and pull onto the wall next to a good small wire placement. The thin cracks give sustained climbing all the way, with good protection. Photo page 118. © ROCKFAX

Don't really know why this is a 3 star route it's not really very good climbing. Well protected and there aren't really any hard moves it just gets really pumpy near the top!

Got my ass handed to me by this. Just enough big holds to hang about for absolutely bloody ages getting pumped, scared and generally making a total dogs dinner of things. Was followed by pathetic shaking, a migraine and a nap.

After Chris walked up it... may have had a tightish rope.

Chuffed to get this clean and with a minimum of fuss. Well protected, sustained and quite pumpy. Really enjoyable and very clean/dry even after it pissed down with rain last night.
