Rather to hard for me. Did have to peel onto S Crack for the crux : Also used S Crack for protection, so more like E1
shah - 2nd dog - 18/Jul/14

first e2, had runners in s-crack so probably cheating but nevermind. Seconded Dan on it first.

Slipped off ledge at the start before I'd even started the crux! So technically a redpoint :) Also used a couple of mats.

Worked the start for ages trying to figure it out. Eventually led above a mat for the start. The top half is excellent.
Jack00 - Lead RP - 24/Aug/08 with tommyzero

Fell off early on. Fortunately with a runner in S-Crack. Feel like I copped out a bit as I used S crack a little bit for gear. (V low nut and a very high cam to protect the final move).
