White Smear* E4 5c

Rockfax Description
15m. Lovely climbing on fine rock but with no meaningful protection. Move up past the tiny white smear on sloping holds and make a longish reach to pass the overhang and wall above. More good moves gain the top. © ROCKFAX

Now a bolted line. Proabably 6c or 6c+. Nice climb. Reachy crux move.

Damp conditions and had one fall on the crux. Excellent sustained climbing...wouldn't fancy the lead though!

No positive holds however lots of good ledges for feet. With improved flexibility and sloper endurance would be manageable. Found the tech grade not representative of the leading grade... If leading, would deck out without using bolted protection.
