Abbed down it after climbing Cool Heat. Didnt think Id lead as early in the season (particularly for me this year) so TR'd. Found it ok, so led. Really good climbing and not that bold - but i knew where it went.Ollie B - Lead rpt - 13/Apr/14 with B.Brewer

First E4! Good, varied climbing. Big moves at the start, delicate in the middle and very loose at the top. Somebody suggested going right at the top to Cool Heat, as a consistent, more solid finish. I won't comment on the adjectival grade, but I definitely don't think it was soft for 5c!

First E4!! My first E3 being yesterday (crushing!)!Had to work for it though. Pumped out first go and rested on gear past the thread at the micro wire placement, didnt read the route right and was trying the wrong moves. Second go I snapped a hold at the start pulling over the roof. Ripped out a micro cam just over the lip and fell on a nut. Jon caught me just before I hit the deck. Jumped straight back on to climb it clean!! Psyched!

How much to you trust the tat thread through the
half inch concretion and the rusty peg?? I did not so felt quite bold.

massively pumpy start to the rest. actual move is blind/committing but not too hard with confidence. soft E4 but is E4.

Fell from above the peg! Dammit.

very hard when you ignore a crucial hold out of stupidity. but otherwise nice and pumpy

Easy .... on the blunt end!

Not hard climbing but the gear is not great. 6mm cord through a 10mmx3mm thick concretion thread is not something I'd want to trust my legs to in a fall...

Excellent sustained climbing but it's E3 rather than E4 as it's not that hard and the gear is not that spaced, though it's all pretty small (largest was a cam 0.3 and a nut 1, rest were micros, plus the thread and the peg). Went directly up from the peg, which provided a few more good moves but ended up in some less pleasant ground. Perhaps better to move out right to join Cool Heat higher up, probably similar level of difficulty. Unfortunately Ben couldn't get over the initial overhang.

Rested once above the thread. Adam had fun, his relieved cry of "jug" echoing out into the woods.......

I thought I was going to die on this. I picked it as my first E3, having done one or two E2s. I was lucky and learnt a lot here.
