The jugs at the end of the sequence through the bulge are very loose.

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.

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.

Got completely boxed first go trying to fiddle in gear on the crux. Lowered down to the ledge, then led through. Good climbing through the bulge, but the line at the top is a bit vague.

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