P1- roof crux-and then steady moves left to spike and up to belay E1 5a P2- delicate/thin moves up wall right from belay. Short and sharp E1 5b (continuing up groove from belay is given 4c by definitive guide)

E1 5a is an illogical grade for two reasons. Firstly. it is a thin 5b move around the overhang and secondly it isn't bold, despite what the guidebook says. But superb and unusual jugs on that top wall if you follow the proper line.

Rin led the main pitch and I got the sloppy seconds!
Timo Austino - AltLd O/S - 24/Jun/09 with Rin

Hilarious time looking for the "mama jugs" under the overhang. Who wrote that guide? Probably more like 5b. Abseiled off the top at 11 pm. Us herdy-loving Cumbrians are soft-core to the max!
