Northumberland Wall*** E2 5c
[Will soloin' Northumberland Wall E2 5c, 2 kb]15m.

Rockfax Description
14m. 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

What an unbelievable route!! Super varied and with interesting moves throughout, a great line and superb weather to cap it off. Was getting a bit psyched out by this one before hand so it was amazing to get on it and feel comfortable!

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

I have led it many times before but Simon actually led it today.
Steve Crowe - Lead O/S - 02/May/90 with SimonGee

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.
