Creeping Flesh*** E5 6a
[Seconding first ascent of Creeping Flesh (E5 6a), 4 kb] The pegs have now been removed on creeping flesh (Oct 14) It has now been without them...It now offers a bolder proposition requiring a more sustained effort... For any aspirant leaders it should now be approached as hard E5 (E6?) 6b the crux is much bolder without its 2 pegs and more airtime awaits those who fluff it! A good stash of rps plus 3 sets of small to med nuts up to no6 are advised along with plenty of QD's (No cams needed) Stu

Onsight, just- called for a tight rope but didn't need it. Can't imagine leading this, definitely the most mental route I have ever been on!
