Mongol*** E2 5c
[Salamanda tackles the crux of Mongol (E2 5c) at Beacon Scar., 2 kb]A magnificent climb up the steep thin crack, vaguely comparable to Northumberland Wall at Great Wanney. No hard moves but fairly uphill. Gain the crack from the ledge and large block, and follow it via good moves and perfect protection until amongst the steepness. Stride right to a lonely ledge, from where a stiff pull gains an easier (and slightly dusty) groove. Weave delightfully up this to finish.

A great line with what would be great moves but very dirty. Pleased to clean onsight it in light of the dirt!

Post thunder shower. Approached with trepidation following the rain and thunder, but the moves flowed and the gear was perfect. Spot on, quality climb, best E2 on moors?

Cleanly led during a great spell of form. One of those climbs where I really had to ask myself questions about how much I wanted the onsight
