My first E5. Had a couple of tries at this in recent weeks. Managed to string it all together in clean ground up lead today. Really pleased. Excellent route! Deserves more than 3 stars!

Another good learning experience on the way to elusive frist e5 onsight.
First go - confused on traverse and didn't know where to go and didn't go far enough - pumped out and slumped! Pulled ropes.
Second go - found early move off crimps even harder. Scraped it to good break clipped gear - caught jacket on a sharp pebble on the traverse and had to reverse a move to get it off - first jug - second jug -layed one on the for the top and took a 9 metre 'noooooo!'
Next time - got the beta written down - fitter - less brave - place more gear - psyched

last 2 cams were not the best making the slap to the top ledge feel very nice when i got it. First E5 - sweet!!!
i thought it was easier than some E4's ive done, but cant compare to other E5s.
markalmack - Lead RP - 20/Sep/09 with anna baker
Rare but possibly introductory headpoint ascent. Enjoyed three short sessions of practice but the lead represented the first clean ascent throughout. Great climbing and still surprisingly adreneline fuelled!

Wasn't expecting it to be so sustained. 3 distinct crux sections with semi rests/shake outs in between. Brilliant. Was pumped by the end and was quite dynamic off the final pinch to the top.
Ram MkiV - Lead O/S - 04/Sep/06 with Dan and Nick
Chose a bit too warm a day for this one, had to slap the top facing a possible monster whipper!
