E4 in 1992 guide.

Did it as one pitch, finishing up the crack of Oblivion. Not sure I can justify calling this my first E5, especially with both threads in situ (there's a good wire next to the second anyway). It felt like E4 6a, but I was climbing well on the day. I actually enjoyed the crux - just a few steep pulls between pockets on the bulge. Staying strictly in the pocketed crack would make it harder but a bit contrived when there's juggy sidepulls within reach on the left ;)

A really good route. Do it in one pitch finishing direct to the Earl belay station. Found the run out after the crux nervy due to the skinny thread. This would be eliminated if some kind soul added an in situ thread about 8ft above the current one! I didn't have any tat .it would be impossible to place on the lead.

great route, did it as one pitch. 2 stars! Beta consisted of an abseil from another route.

Not pleasant at the crux, but then it's not starred. A fourth route takes in the hard crux of Clan Union! There is a 5a independent finish in the guide, but we went up (My Name Is) Earl of Perth instead.
