12m. Climb the obvious groove and crack to gain the top break before stepping left to pull over a small roof via flakes.

Well chuffed with this, have been up to the large hold and backed off a few times now, felt great to commit beyond that! Thin getting the upper break.

Stupidly blew it at the top. Found the lower section much easier this time though.

Climbed up to the ledge, got freaked out and climbed down. Had a shake out and went for it. Not really any let up anywhere on it until near the top, serious feeling climb. Could be because I had a harness made from a sling and shoes that were too big :-/ First E4 onsight :-)

Would think it can't be far off E5.

Fultonius 05/Sep/12 Lead rpt

After work blast. Rushing it a bit and fell low down. Tried again but still mega pumped so had a long rest on the ground, then led to top onsighting 2/3 of the route. Annoyed/chuffed at the same time... Where's the Lead Ground-Up option again??

Thought this was nippy, especially low down. Lovely move high up to get the break. Abb for gear.

Fail! Made it into the crack / groove thing but was irredeemably pumped and fell off trying to move up from there. Backed off from a move higher on the next go. Hard!

nice. curious to see what 6a feels like outside. several goes at lower hard bit, one fall higher up. did all the moves in the end though

Gear is fiddly to place. That's probably harder than the moves themselves.

First ever trad fall. Decked out on onsight attempt cos cam ripped, ribs took a good bruising, as did my ego. Got back on it but was tired/ a bit psyched out

Tough for grade and very fiddly gear, good climbing though.
