The Purr-Blind Doomster*** E5 6a
[Autumnal steal 1, 2 kb]Techincal, sustained climbing up a central crack to an obvious 'post-box' slot before stepping right to sloping holds on the arete (crux) making bold moves up this to a large spike, finish up and right more easily from this. Savour every move!

James lead to just past the crux then came down. Pulled the ropes, I lead up with gear in, rested before the bold upper section and then finished it off. A Pink point dog I think...

Self-belay. 3 times I got to the top improving every time. I will be back to try again to get it clean but may take multi attempts!!! :o)

Really good climb - the "slopers" didn't seem too slopey which was a relief, quite exciting all the same.

Really sweet climbing that unlocks itself as you progress. Hugged the spike like it was my best friend ;)
Dr Toph - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/10 with Jason, Ed

Tophs on-sight, superb lead, amazing to see. seconded to the post box then skewed left to top out. A lead in this calibre is a long way off for me.Hats off Toph.
