6a/b. E4 to solo. Hard Start leads to easy but slightly airy climbing until a span leads to the arete and the descent!

An incredibly difficult start for the short led to tactics being used to get just before the bolt. Rest was good

Played about on the start a bit then did it. The peg/bolt doesnt really do much as once clipped the hard climbing is over.

First moves are hard. Lovely climbing afterwards.

Brilliant little route! Took a few abortive attempts to suss out the moves to the bolt, then fell from the last move twice. Sans pads.

Above pads. Fantastic stuff - properly memorable, especially high up.

re-worked the hard moves up to pinch

Mike Goldthorp 15/Nov/12 Solo O/S

Verrrry nice, immaculate wall climbing, small feet, small crimps that get a bigger as you get higher, which is nice, and then a great move for the juggy tope ledge, boom! Bouldery 6b into solid 6a moves into scary 5c top moves.

Bouldered the start easily but didn't fancy the solo. Peg looks high up and a long way to the right

bouldered the start a few times managing to find the best sequence. Grabbed a quickdraw and roped up. A little bit of relief when peg was clipped. Needed to catch a bus in 20 minutes so had to sacrifice a quickdraw on the peg. Well earned whoever gets it!

Beta needed!

Worked ground-up but play stopped couple of moves below peg after ripping a tip. Didn't really know where line goes as pretty much every hold on that wall is chalked.

Solo with high scary finish, much better this way. Put to bed now.

2nd try (overall) felt pretty straightforward this time

Used a couple of pads. Got to the last move and bailed, was getting dark and couldn't see footholds well. Felt like i might barn door off otherwise, and miss the mats ( = broken ankles). Fell about 6 metres but was ok.

I'll not record everytime I do it, but it lends itself to a good warm up route

1st Gorge E4. The beta (from PE before I knew him) was the starting foothold.
