Breech Birth E1 5b
[the long reach was too long for 5'8" me, 3 kb]Climb a flake to the widest part of the roof.
Overcome the roof to reach a good break, and finish easily up right. HVS 5a if you scoot left at the roof, 5c for the direct if short.

Went super direct. Had a few down climbs to psyche myself up. Went from the two edge crimps to jug in a big dyno. Trish went out right to some holds..which did look smarter.

im sorry but struggle to see what makes this route E1 or even E2 in someone else's guide!? i got loads of good gear under roof and then managed to place a small wire in the crack bove the lip before even moving up, so it was effectively on top rope for the crux!

E2 in my old guidebook, complete joke. 'crimps' above over hang have morphed into jugs. HVS

open hand pinch to get over roof for not so tall & last lead of the day was to much for me :-)
Ali.B - Lead dnf - May/10

very long reach of a pinch over the over hang. Chickened it and went left

Not an obvious line. Go slightly to the left and it it much easier - which I did. HVS?
