Classic, first E3 for a while so was grateful for the bomber gear all the way. Thought the 4c move on the first pitch was harder than anything on the 5c pitch!

minted crack climbing... need to keep learning my lessons about footwork. finished after one fall. jams are so good it's hard to let go, though no dry retching unfortunatly.

Was totally stylin' it and feeling really good with only the last metre or so of the roof crack to go, when my right foot slipped off a shitty quartz hold and i fell.... GUTTED!

Led the 2nd 5c pitch under the roof. Excellent traverse with one foot on the roofat the belay. Take a double set of friends and a clean head!
simon_D - AltLd O/S - 25/Sep/08 with Alan Martin

Awesome climb, top corner looks short but packs a punch and there is a perfect jug waiting just around the corner....

Quite possibly the most misleading guidebook photo ever. Looks like a hand traverse...feels like a roof crack!
