Blisterin' Barnacle** E2 5b
[Simon Hammond looking back down from the top of Blisterin' Barnacle, 1 kb]

Rockfax Description
Culm slab climbing at its finest but again with limited protection in its lower reaches. Start right of the thin crack of Jazz Discharge Party Hat below a thin crack in the upper section of the slab.
Pursue a line up the bold slab to better protection and holds at a thin seam. Move up this and step left to the upper crack and follow this pleasantly to the top. © ROCKFAX

Stiff start, I slipped off the first moves due to crushed limpet juice on my boots. The lower 20foot is the hardest, particularly due to limpets every where. Good solid climbing for the rest of the route

Wow! We've been working through E2's along the culm coast and this one is my favourite so far. Looks thin from the bottom but good holds and odd shaped cracks all the way up. 3 stars in my book.
