Just another day/scorch the earth*** E5 6a
[Highlights of 2013 - trad in the Leap!, 2 kb]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 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.

Brilliant! Led shortly after belaying Conor on it, so pretty stress-free with all the beta.

Damp at the bottom which made the move left hard. Easier higher up. Great combo!

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!

Flash. Abseiled the line last year to clean kit, also had a look at the top thread before the send. Second route on the west wall...is it the best wall in the UK?

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.
