This climb is on the wall between the traverse and the nose. The hole is very similar to a letter box slot about halfway up. The description for this route is wrong and misleading sending folks to the far end of the crag not on Sunburst red.

E3 in the guidebook and as others have said, more like VS and not very good to be honest, much better climbs further left...

What clown graded this E3? probably vs 4c. If you climbed the wall in a 30cm wide channel you might get e3 5c, but that would just be silly..

There is no way this climb is E3 5c. The guidebook mentions an obvious hole in the rock and I could only see 1 obvious hole so I dont think I got the route wrong. Protection is good. Top section a little tricky but i'd say its probably more like VS 4c.

The clown that climbed this and graded was Gary latter. I cleaned it substantially not long after as it was covered crumbling lichen.
