Deodand* E1 5b
12m. In the Pitface. The corner at the right side of the undercut slab, passing an overlap at five metres. Straightforward with enough gear but may need to be raked out in places, traverse right at the top for 3m below loose overhangs (small wires) and around slight corner to finish straight up by grasping small bonsai tree bush thing, possibly HVS if clean.

Good honest climbing up an attractive corner, possibly a little dusty but well protected. Style around the lower roof to a rest, then steady sustained bridging leads to a useful lower-off.

Lovely climbing. Little tricky to place gear above before the crux roof. Great to have the chains at the top. More of these in Wilton please!

agree with previous comment, a good route and worth its star, still a little dusty but should clean up with traffic now the lower off is there

Very good route and one I've not done before. Thanks to the climber who's recently done a lot of work on it. I did clean out the crack a bit on the lead and the give the route a good clean on lowering off (very good lower off before the top) Well worth doing

Very dirty but worth the effort, very good climb, gear placements could need cleaning out at the back of the crack

Climbed just before the ledge was cleaned and the lower off put in place. Therefore resulted in a run out loose top out which felt like E4 4a! Good fun though.
