A big pitch. The crux on the first half is delicate and suboptimally protected.

Solid in the grade. High heel-hook mantel/rockover above small, blind gear is not a move I expect to find on a limestone E1.
Nick Russell - 2nd - 11/May/15 with Alastair Begley
Felt pretty solid 5b to me, and certainly no pushover at E1.
alastairbegley - Lead O/S - 11/May/15 with Nick Russell
Routefinding is hard and at various points there is lots of checking out the next holds before retreating to resting holds while deciding on where to go. Good enough climb though lots of awkward and bold-feeling moves. How the CC guide can justify E1 5a/b is beyond me, E1 5b+ would be more appropriate...!

Really good, sustained climbing. Compared to the other routes we did at Shorn Cliff, this is pretty solid at the grade.
Alex Winter - 2nd O/S - 03/May/14 with Ben Darby
Tough moves lower down, and blindly placing gear in the flake was interesting. Didnt see any groundfall potential though! Not runout at top either, loads of gear, well good top half

A fine climb: sustained and interesting thoughout. Strangely, given 5a/b in current guide. Maybe I missed something, but pulling through overlap felt stiffish 5b and harder than any move on Run for Home. Perhaps it's 5a if you use the tree! Unlike Shorn Cliff to be mean about grades!
