The Smile*** E1 5a
[The Smile taken from the sea, 2 kb]35m.

Rockfax Description
A fabulous route that follows the sweeping, wide break across the face of the fin and is topped off by a well-positioned thin crack. Start at a vague line of holds that lead up to the break.
Climb up the wall to the left-slanting break. Follow the break all the way to a broken niche and climb up the wall above via a thin crack to the top. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A classic North Coast E1 which gives strenuous climbing along the obvious diagonal line. Take care with rope work and the increasingly loose block on the top wall.

I could not get off the ground. The boulder start was beyond me. My feet slithered on the greasy rock: I could not find anything for my feet at all. I ended up hauling myself up the ab rope while Scott winched. Once I'd got over the first two metres it was fine, although I was pretty tuckered out from hauling my sorry ass up the rope.

Great lead from Helen. Start harder than remembered - something about boulder moved on beach. Failed to remove dead cam from traverse currently blocking gear placement.
philhilo - 2nd rpt - 16/Aug/15 with Helen E

A tough cookie this one!getting off the floor and onto the main traverse felt hard and committing! Left me with flash pump making the rest of the route a real battle!managed to get it clean though! My second however had a real epic, managing to deck out 3 times, the final of which falls was from around 3m! fortunately he was not hurt and went on to get out safely with the aid of a rope set up above the start to attach ascender to, to stop him decking again!

Was knackered before I started, but Annie was up for the second so I had a god. Great route, very pumpy. Had a couple of rest after an initial slump when my whole set of offsets got stuck in the crack. Didn't have much gear left when I got to the final vertical section, but fashioned together some quickdraws and preselected my gear and got up fine in the end.
