Lazarus** E6 6b
[Matt Fry on Lazarus (E7 6c), 2 kb]30m.

Rockfax Description
A very impressive pitch that takes on the bulging wall on the seaward end of the cliff. The grade is for an ascent with the peg in place, although a good nut is also available but may prove difficult to place on lead and is sometimes pre-placed to back up the aged peg. Start below a steep, thin flake-crack, just right of The Cull. Climb the flake to a thin horizontal break. Pull right and then up with difficulty to a peg from where more hard climbing gains a good hold. Climb with less difficulty to an overhang and thread, before moving up left to a crack that is followed to the top. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Start up the steep undercutting crack a few metres right of The Cull, climb this to a rest at the thin horizontal break. Make fingery, technical moves right to below the peg (broken), but gear available if you can hang on, and make more tiring moves past this. Breathe a sigh or relief then walk to the top following a thin seam for the last few metres.

plenty of good gear where it's needed, and very shortlived crux. Soft E6?

HAd two Rp's placed in the crack above the peg. Placed the rest on lead and flashed the climbing.

In an afernoon. Certainly not E7, E6 6b fair. The peg is broken but there's a good wire just above it. Technical fingery crux around the peg but apart from that section (a few metres) it's a path.

Done with a rest on the peg when I was a yoof. More like E6 6b.
