Sedge Warbler** E2 5b
[Sedge Warbler, 3 kb]Steep juggy climbing. Scramble up to the left-hand side of the arête, step up and swing round, or climb the lower crack direct to gain a narrow ramp. Climb this rather precariously, then follow the cracks above to a large ledge. Finish carefully up the choss above.

1 rest. Should have warmed up on a sport route. Top out required a considerable rightwards traverse to poor rock and gorse. Birds nest just above the hard climbing with 3 crow chicks.

Nothing too difficult just more endurance required, great protection all the way. . . top out needs cleaning, ended up having to traverse over right to get up. Will be taking a set of sheers and lopers before trying again

Nice positive slots in the cracks. Shame about the topout.

Nice climb but let down by the top. Started direct up cracks to gain the ramp which seems like the obvious and best line to me.

bit off balance swinging round the arete then good jug pulling to the big ledge. leaving this is back and forth between the arete and right end but the finish is on poor rock into a bush. shame.

Not great. All feels a bit loose, and the upper section is horrible.

So much easer this time and not pumped at all, must o had a bad head on the lead. Went straight up the front crack this time, more direct but less fun.

Really nice climbing on the bottom 3/4s, let down a bit by the top out. Just as I thought it would be; steep and very pumpy with good but spaced holds. Gear was great all the way, tho hard to hang-on while placing. Has been on the tick list since I first saw the quary, waited till I was relatively sure I could on-site it. Thought I was coming off at sevral points but made it to the top and was just about sick, lol was trying quite hard.
