Aerobic Wall** E2 5c
[Lloyd onsighting route on Hound Tor, 2 kb]10m. A far more amenable and protectable method of ascending the wall and roof, but still no push-over. Start at the thin crack beneath the roof. 10m. Climb the thin crack to the break under the roof and power up and out across the right-leaning flakes to a couple of rounded finishing overlaps. © ROCKFAX
Classic! The centre of the wall, starting in the thin crack to the overhang. Make use of the rounded flake to sumount this and continue up and slightly right to finish 'manfully'. Friends protect.

Sam Husband - 2nd O/S - 07/Dec/14 with Ed

Rested on the lead (the shame) so gave it a solo after to make up for it

Straightforward having stolen all of Ed's beta!
mikespooner - Lead β - 07/Dec/14 with Luke von Freeden

Stoked to have finally got the balls to do it - chuffed with the flash. Actually not as bad as i thought it would be. Staying calm at the top and moving slightly left is the key.
