White Life*** E5 6b
[Pocketed lower wall shared by Black Death and White Life, Chudleigh, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
An excellent, tough route with good gear on the crux which lies in the top third of the climb. High in the grade. Start as for Wogs.
Follow Wogs to the start of Inkerman Groove's crux traverse. Head up the wall to the right on pockets to a good wire and a peg a little higher up. Move left to a peg, and up to another peg, then on to a thin horizontal break. Move left again and up to another peg, before a final sequence up a thin crack gains the top. © ROCKFAX

Took some work and a few attempts but finally got this clean, placing all gear on the lead. Hard!

Quality hard climbing. All the pegs seem good enough, and other gear is bomber. Pumpy all the way to the top.
Ged Desforges - Lead O/S - 2013

Lobbed off eye to eye with second peg having got wrong-handed and unable to clip. Landed in the groove of Wogs 4 feet above the head of an unfortunate second... clean to the top after pulling up to high point. Awesome but unforgiving climbing.
