Rockfax Description
16m. Originally called Ella, this ancient aid route would be a Millstone masterpiece were it shipped down there. Climb the initial overhang and follow the crack to a ledge (beware nesting birds - puke, puke). The slanting crack gives a sustained technical battle to a taxing exit. There may be a peg runner in place. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The belting crack through the headwall has a quasi-religious aura. Although Rockfax gives the grade as E4, the consensus seems to be solid E5.

Dogged up on Dave's gear first.

Long overdue. Pleasantly awkward. Maybe should have flashed it, falling off chalking at the top was a definite disappointment...

Got to the second peg then got very tired. The move getting up to there is nails to figure out. The rest looks pumpy.

A corker of a pitch! Onsighted to second peg but then floundered. Lowered off, pulled ropes and got it second (g.u) attempt. E4?! super safe but hard E5 for my money - F7a+ at least. Awesome crux seqeunce involving tenuous a finger jam and (for me) crucial thumb positioning! Brilliant.
