Stone Boom** E2 5c
[Stone Boom pitch two, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A popular climb with two contrasting pitches. Start on a large, flat ledge below a wide, rounded crack.
1) 5b, 17m. Climb the wide rounded crack to a horizontal crack in the right wall. Traverse the crack right to just past the arete and then move up the wall to a good ledge and belay.
2) 5c, 12m. Climb the thin and fingery corner above the ledge to the top. A good piece of climbing. © ROCKFAX

First pitch E2 5b, wasn't up for second pitch with micros and a large ledge! Climbed the crux then reversed as silly gear

Crap conditions but was second day running at the crag to do this route so had to have a go, rained just before and during Sue's P1 (the corner was horrid) and all v greasy on my pitch, couldn't depump on slick finger jugs near top and eventually rested one move from glory, bit disappointing but look forward to returning for the tick in crisper weather, loads of gear after first few meters of p2 is passed

Got nailed by a wave on the belay, massively unfit and wet so some serious dogging going on but an awesome route nonetheless!
