A touch soft but the prospect of falling in the Bear Pit enhances it!

Lovely flowing climbing all the way.

Really lovely fine delicate climbing with even more delicate gear placements. Really enjoyed it.

bluesharper - 2nd - 12/May/13 with Richard

Pretty good, very similar to the E2 next door.
richardr - Lead O/S - 12/May/13 with Szymon

Easy moves, a little bold in places. A nice E1.
Dave Mahon - Lead O/S - 06/May/13 with Brian Mead

Faffed with finding the route and then at run out "crux" - quickly bottled but then sussed it. Pleasing, if not my finest hour. Tweaked my back slightly.
Phil Murray - Lead rpt - 05/May/13 with Steve Wright

I have never had to use that many microwires before!

Traversed left too early this time and ended up taking the finish to Ironside's Men, a big pull through on a dodgy finger jam and a mini sloper, interesting.

Found this quite hard going but bits of it were wet so may have contributed.. alright gear but mostly small and fiddly and spaced as per the guide description. You wouldn't want to fall above any of the gear...
