Shunted it a few times before leading. Slightly damp after showers but climbable. Hardest lead to date

Done on shunt. Nearly got it clean! Even 5b seems generous if I can get up it!

Highballed. Exciting jug pulling. Got wrong-handed before the niche, but the holds are big enough to reverse and get sorted. Still, it upped the adrenaline surge! (2 mats, no spotter.)

Annoyingly lost the onsight gambling for a hold that wasn't actually any good near the top, got it 2nd time. Very soft

Not sure where the vertical cam slot is at half height, but wouldn't call this E4 5c. E2 5b feels about right.

Sawed the big dead fallen tree that was overhanging the top and cut back the brambles. Although pumpy the holds are very good apart from one 5a/5b move to gain the niche near the top. Also there was a piece of dead wood in a vertical slot on the right, halfway up the route which i have now removed. This slot now takes a bomber large cam so i would suggest the actual grade for leading this route is E1 5a/E2 5b. :)

E2 5b is about right with the two cams, even to solo though I still can't see how this could possibly be harder than E3 5b.

Monk 06/May/13 TR O/S

The top third is filthy at the moment, and the brambles don't help with topping out (although the fallen tree did...). Anyone intending to do this 'properly' would be advised to give it a clean first.
