Satchmo*** E2 5c
[George Haydon enjoying a brief rest on Satchmo. 1983., 2 kb]The superb long leaning groove gives a great piece of climbing, sustained, though with good protection, and a hard move high up (well, apart from the move to get off the ground). Well worth calling in for when the conditions are right. © ROCKFAX

Dave Warburton - 2nd - 13/Jul/13 with Matthew

Was a bit stumped by the lower crux and nearly fell out of the wide finish but thoroughly enjoyable. Good to finally do this.

Sam Marks - Lead O/S - 16/Sep/12 with Jack Hodgson

Abit damp and slimey, but probably not the problem... will be back for the HP. Fantastic gear and a great route.
markfairbank - Lead dog - 30/May/12 with Calum Wadsworth

Dave had first attempt, used a few of his early runners. Right on my limit, superb route.
freemanTom (Guildford MC) - Lead β - 29/May/12 with Dave Everitt CMC

Took one fall lowdown onto a bomber cam, then did it clean next try. An awesome line and a big break through for me one of my first E2 leads.
Bloke on a Rope - Lead RP - 27/May/12 with Matt

Brilliant little route! I took a canny fall onto a double 0 which was placed in one of the many slimey cracks and it held. Excellent technical climbing :)

Quite tricky to start and tricky to finish. Well protected but slimey rock which spoilt things.
Skinny Kin - Lead O/S - 04/Jul/09 with Dan Hirst, Neil Morbey

Well protected route. Climbing partner had done the hard work up to the crux. My first E lead in the bag. Dogged but Fantastic.

goi.ashmore - Lead O/S - 26/Aug/06 with Arnaud Garcon

After falling the lower section and nearly decking, and scaring myself. i tried again with much more "anger" pulled over to the rest went for the lay back and slipped falling only a meter or 2. i flew up it with rage. it was done in the rain but the route wasn't to bad, but still annoyed about losing my on sight

A real classic and typical of the grade. It's a generally damp crag but Satchmo should be OK in the damp if not the pouring rain!
