Zugzwang* E2 5b
40m. A varied climb with a good steep second pitch. The first pitch is ambiguously described in the guidebook, it goes thusly: P1. 5a/b. Start at the left hand wet slate corner, climb this boldly and then the slanting groove above until a swing out right on a triangular block gains a niche. Move up and stroll leftwards along a good belay ledge. P2. 5b. From the left end of the ledge, climb steeply up to gain a large circular niche. Follow the thin crack from the left side of this to gain a bridging rest on the right. Tricky moves up into the groove/rib out left lead to an easier finish on the right.

The first pitch up the obvious corner then across the massive shelf was on massive holds. From the second belay the interesting climbing starts. It involved some funny moves to gain holds. The traversing part was nails. It took me ages to place my feet on the smallest of edges and go for a massive reach across to the wired pyramid shaped holds. I had tried various different ways to do this move, ignoring Macca's advice from the top, before I realised I had to man up!
