First attempt at seconding an E2 5b. Fun!
BareBears - 2nd dog - 21/Jun/14 with Dale

My favourite route of the day probably because it was pushing me. Sustained 5b moves and pumpy, with the hardest move threw the overhang which I had to down climb because the first time I got the sequence wrong. Spaced protection but enough. With an awkward abseil which Dan found all very exciting just another day in the office :)

Might have went slightly too high but don't think it affected me too much. Wouldn't really give it that grade, bit lower.

A deliciously well concealed booby trap, presumably by the Shorn Cliff Beast: The knot on the lower off tat had been 1/2 chewed through and one of the loose ends of the fisherman's was chewed off completely. Zero chance of it holding. Hidden the other side of a large trunk, it was an almost perfect job. Nice one beast!

What a struggle - required lots of coaxing!
bjlsmith - 2nd - 09/Aug/10 with Misha and SMC

Very nice face climbing on concretions. Didn't clip either of the pegs as there's sufficient natural gear. It's not that run out and it's not that hard on the bits that are run out (crux is going over the overhang I think), so quite an easy E2. Epic effort from Ben but he got to the top eventually.

One of the insitu threads on worryingly thin cord, could do with replacing.

My second E2. Bit bold and run out but not too scary.. Cool holds.

Broke a foothold. Pleasant, and low in the grade. "Enjoyable and safe" may be a little misleading, enjoyable yes, but it does feel a little runout.
