Climb the thin finger crack until it peters out at a horizontal break. Move up onto the wall above via finger pockets to a PR. Finish up the flake and sandy headwall to the right.

You can get a very small cam left of the massive slot if you don't have a big cam. Very good.

More rope rests than you can shake a stick at but still a brilliant climb and a superb lead, well done Pete

Fell once on top rope. Looking forward to leading at some point.

pedrosanpb 25/Jun/14 Lead dnf

Left my big gear a the bottom to save weight then couldn't get anything good behind the big flake, doh! Decided I wasn't happy with my gear at that point, didn't want to trust the peg, so decided discretion was the better part of valour as I didn't know what the last few holds were like and abandoned, abbing gently off the peg and clearing the several hundred wires I'd laced the crack with. Bit gutted but better luck next time...

Chuffed to get this clean as it was my first attempt at an E2 onsight - although I used the 'chicken-clip' on the upper wall, which probably knocks it down to E1. Brilliant, varied climbing from start to finish. The crux move is much softened for those with skinny fingers.

Best route of the day, brilliant. Peg not needed though. Tricky sequence before the break which could catch you out. E1+?
