[Fever, 3 kb]Another big pitch with excellent bold climbing. Start at the right-hand side of the green streak at a shallow groove. Climb to the bulges then trend right through these to a crack. Swing swiftly back left and pull onto a ledge right on the arete. Finish up a thin crack splitting the top wall. © ROCKFAX
One of the best E2s on the Moors. A confident approach is needed, and a strong arm to hold on. Friend 4 needed.

Great route, not sure what compelled me to warm up on it... Hardest bit it the top but there is a slightly bold section lower down.

A great pitch. Protection Ok with plenty of cams. Top move is harder than 5b?

More like DNS. Good gear comes in the first breaks, moved through to the next big break and lay away hold fully expecting more gear and there was none :( ...moves going higher looked ok but bit bold for me today!

Really good. Pretty pumpy until the ledge but by then it's pretty much done.
Matthew Ferrier - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/13 with Jack Hodgson, Sam Marks

Managed the first half, stupidly decided to rest holding a break, got way too pumped and slipped off. One day.

The best E2 I've done so far; reasonably protected, and the finish is just brilliant.

Got pumped on this, first route in a while good climbing through-out.

Superb, pumpy jug hauling and with positive holds inbetween. It's not exactly runout - have a good selection of Cams at hand and it can be VERY well protected! Did i mention it being pumpy?
Dave Warburton - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/08 with Franco Cookson

awesome. *** sustained, but good holds and cams.
Franco Cookson OLD - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/08 with David Warburton

Lead by Rich Cragrat.

Rock solid E2. Committing, pumpy and bold. Technically hard at top crack. Not suggesting I'm rock solid at E2... got well messy, but glad to manage to free it onsight all the same
