Without preplaced gear this time. Even though I wasn't fully recovered from being sick, this felt soft for E1 5b.pheotleyr - Lead rpt - 29/Mar/14 with Jana
Went left at hole first, re-lead it properly!

Led on Ben's gear. Lots of upper end 5a climbing, no proper 5b climbing I thought. And reasonably protected. Seemed pretty soft for E1 to me, but the preplaced gear might have helped.

Pleasantly surpising route for new quarry trad! Found it quite technical getting to the thread but only 5b.

tat a decent chunk of rope, twin bolts above mentioned in the guide now appear to be a single new bolt. Some nice moves.

Judging by the cobwebs a neglected route but surprisingly nice climbing and solid rock for NQ. There are some good wires and micro-wires but the rotten tat and corroded pegs and mangled bolts needs replacing. Worth E2 in current state, maybe E1 if refitted?

The easiest E2 in the gorge? More like HVS.
