Great route. Strong moves to get around the roof but not actually too bad as long as you keep moving. Bailed out of leading the 5b roof of Schimitar Variations (Roackfax) at the top. Felt more like 5c to me and with the possibility of hitting the ledge before the gear caught.

The first pitch was beautiful, quite sustained but with rests in the right spots. Over the overhang was a crimp fest but didn't release how run out it was gonna be so that added some spice to things. We were gonna do scimitar variations as according to the rockfax guide but after George avoided it and then i had a go top roping it on second it is much harder than 5b and is very serious if you fall.

E2 IMO. hard to commit to the move around the "roof". Was planning on Scimitar Variations as per rockfax, although it got dark and we escaped up the 2nd pitch of central groove.. climbing is awesome after the roof. Awesome holds and

Great climb, 'adequate' gear (small / medium) cams on the upper wall of the 1st pitch. One of the best routes at the Dewerstone.
