E4 in Ground Up, didn't feel E5.

Felt steep and like a scary sport route to me. Didn't hang around too long before committing which I'm glad of. But even so, I've not done much steep stuff recently so still got a bit pumped. Not E5.

I replaced the threads today. Either a retro flash or ground up with 1 fall (the fall taking place 3 years ago). I really enjoyed this but it isn't even E4 let alone E5 - it's a few moves between threads (Fr 6b/+). For me there is no way this is harder than Stroll On, Foil or Pulsar for example all of which are E3. Worth taking a medium cam (not essential) on this for the break where the wall becomes a slab. There's an abseil station up and right from where you top out.

Started off what became a team smash of a fairly bouldery trad route!

clipped second thread and was pumped out of my mind. Couldnt get the sapling out of mind was convinced was going to land in it.

flashed on Jo's gear, would have been able to find and place it all. quite a good route with some proper pulling involved. not E5

Seconded a while ago, good moves. E3 assuming the threads are good?

Not E5. E3 or E4 depending on how good the threads are? Really enjoyed this nonetheless

Great climb, interesting features. Had a fanny wobble at the 2nd thread. Gets easier with height.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 28/May/10

cheeky! 5th route of the day so bit tired, also bit sweaty in evening sun and slightly algae-tainted. those are probably all just excuses: i thought this was going to be 'connect the jugs' climbing but it isnt and i was caught out. up and down about 5 times before thoughts of the sapling/tree, increasing pump and the wrong approach got the better of me. fell onto the 1st thread from just below 2nd and ended up quite far down. not sure how this can be E4 given the threads, style and length but i didnt do it so cant really comment. never E5 though. next time...

Really cool pocket pulling, though not as positive as I expected. Quite steep.
