Arrange gear, including clipping the old peg, then down to the deck for a rest. Go up on greasy pockets to the right of the peg, then traverse back higher, tricky on smooth flat holds, to the thread. Easier, excellent climbing above leads up to the very steep top wall, where a big reach off a sharp hold leads to a break, then easier to the top. Amazing pitch!

Really enjoyed this, another excellent long pitch. Great crag.

Via direct start past peg (now very rusty but good gear not too far below). Really nice route - good honest climbing!

Ramon Marin 25/May Lead O/S

Really happy with this as it's my first proper E5 onsight coming out of the ice climbing season. No beta, but chalk helped follow the way of course. Felt pretty steady, all gear is bomber. A trad route for sport climbers, maybe 6c+ climbing. I assume the other E5's in leap are a whole different story though...

Had just belayed Tim on it but did most of it totally differently.. Gear beta at the start probably helped a little.

Daniel Heath 15/Jun/13 Lead O/S

Messy lead. Heavy rain but fairly sheltered. I got incredibly pumped very quickly by the peg. Climbed direct to the peg then right. Foot slipped and nearly fell on the traverse left. The rest of the route is absolutely awesome, and the juggy finish is thrilling!

Excellent. First E5 (hard E4), was very aprehensive at first but once id arranged some gear at the start and come back to the deck it was steady enough to the top. F6c, not pumpy and more than adequate gear.
