Was hoping it would feel easier than last time but it didn't. Definitely a tricky E1, I found a lot of the moves hard due to awkwardness.

Yep, it's pumpy. Felt like a bit of an effort to stay on route.
felixizzy - Lead O/S - 10/Apr/15 with George
Pumpy but reasonably straightforward to work out what you have to do....until halfway up when it's very difficult not to stray onto Suspense. A good route.

Individual moves felt much easier than last time (if sustained!) however climbed with very poor tactics placing unnecessary gear and getting too pumped to climb - absolutely gutting. Expect to get the tick next time, just need a bit of psyche!

It is a tad pumpy but decent gear. Really struggled on second a year or so ago. Fantastic route though.
Stanners - Lead rpt - 06/Jul/12 with Kyle Williamson
Sustained, no real crux. Climbed with poor tactics, got pumped hanging around at half rests and fiddling with gear. Struggled a little with route finding, nearly ended up on suspense but traversed back and found the line. Pulled through in the end but it was close to a fall.
