Saturn Five* E2 5b
[Clipping the pegs on Saturn Five (E2 5B), 4 kb]

Rockfax Description
The central line of weakness through the stacked overhangs is a spectacular climb on jugs, a couple of which are a touch wobbly.
Protection is good. Start at the large cage beneath the overhangs.
From the top of the cage step rightwards onto the slab beneath the line. Climb on good holds to twin pegs and then another peg a little higher on the left. Grasp a large flat flange and pull around the overhang above on big holds, the top is a little higher. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Start a few feet right of the cage, crux 5c move to start gains the obvious sidepull pocket feature above the lip then mantel. Technical crux despatched, the route follows the obvious line up past the pegs (tat replaced Winter '08) to a hard move through the roof. Pumpy.

If you start atop the cage ... you haven't done the route! Probably E2 5b that way. E3/4 6a if you boulder out from the bottom of the gully wall to start :)

10/4/15. Did the direct start from second obvious break. A v2-3 boulder. It gets a sounded E2 this way, I don't see how it could get an E3-4 tick for this variation. Will do super direct start at the bottom of the gully next time.

Would have been a nice cheecy onsight, if hadn't slapped on the only bad hold on the route.

Wasn't massively psyched for this but had a go anyway....pumpy but not too bad, didn't use the leg over rest at the 'flat flange' so it cant be massively needed! This is my anti-style so pretty happy.

Lead to pegs, messed up gear twice so climbed 3 times to pegs then fell off roof. Top roped clean.

Started on the cage. Pumped out at the top, awesome climb with really good holds. Reachy move to a very good jugg coming out of the overhang
