[Will soloin' Northumberland Wall E2 5c, 2 kb]15m. A great climb up the groove and crack cleaving the right wall of the gloomy recess - honest hard work and well protected throughout. Climb the leaning groove then continue up the concreted crack above until it fizzles out. Finger traverse right then pull for the top. A Direct Finish is only a little harder. © ROCKFAX

Brilliant line, feels a bit E3 in a few sections. Placing gear was pretty sketchy according to Matt.

My first E2. A fantastic route, well-protected but best not to hang about after pulling round the little roof. Classic E2 but not hard for the grade.
