Strenuous climbing up the groove left of Syringe with some jamming and squirming - fortunately well-protected

Pretty tricky, I'm not sure this warrants E5, but I can't imagine many people finding it easier than Positron! These sort of routes should be sandbags anyway. Fantastic climbing.

hand jams to arm bars, great fun.

Struggled once again due to inability to hand jam!

Good effort Dave. Total beast. All sloping pinches, baggy jams and smeary footholds and very steep. Not even Sultan Abu Ibn Aziz's famed camel jockeys could tame this one.

Same grade as the E5's on Main Cliff.

Somewhat uncompromising, an inability to jam may inconvenience upward progress

Crackin lead by Al in the rain - Fell off a few times seconding the first pitch and trying to get the gear out, f**king savage, what a brutal route!!! Led the second pitch.

Led P1 and P3. First pitch is brutal, it was really greasy because it started raining and i quickly ran out of chalk. 3 hard sections requiring awkward full body movements. Nearly came out the top groove overstetching to a poor pinch. E5 for effort (maybe it wouldnt feel so bad if it were crispy dry.) Thrutchy F7a.

Total beasting. Mammoth difficulty through the crux bulge.. constant hard moves with no respite for far longer than comfortable. Even resorted to prussiks. Led the next pitch nearly had me off when it steepened. Should have taken a longer rest. Will be feeling the effect of that first-pitch full body workout for a week! A properly hard pitch.

Feisty climbing over the roof and across the groove above. Fortunately well-protected.

Brilliant route. Quite a fight through the main pitch.

A very butch first pitch. I was going well till a cam inverted in the overhanging crack and I had to rest on more gear to get it out. Well pumped by then so struggled with the rest of the pitch. Very hard for E4.
