The easiest E4 in the world! Fair at middle of the grade E3 and significantly easier than Lyme Cryme that I did a couple of weeks earlier. The climbing is never too hard or too pumpy, with good holds to blast through the bulge and rests every so often above, although interest is certainly maintained. Some great moves and positions make for a very good route. I thought the cams below the bulge were questionable (I got three of them in) but Phil spent 10 minutes getting one of them out so can't have been that hard. The wires is it above the bulge were so-so as well but above that there was decent gear. So E3 is fair for the gear but the climbing is more like a hardish E2. Certainly nowhere near dangerous or hard enough for E4 5c! In the end, almost ran out of extenders. Several cams 0.3 would have been useful. Misha - Lead O/S - 13/Apr/14 with Phil
Soooo soft for E4. 3 stiff pulls and a sustained 5b 5m section. Gear for crux far from poor - took 10 minutes to get cam out of pocket. Minor departure due to breaking hold at top.

Checked the gear in the bulge while abbing from the previous route. Got completely boxed first go trying to find the right holds. Lowered down to the ledge, then led through. So and old-skool yo-yo? Really good climbing through the bulge. A few of the holds are difficult to see from below, but it's all there.

just keeps on going, pumpy all the way from the first bulge to the top - it never lets up!

Soft. Just a bit pumpy on the bulge, plenty of gear if you can place it.
