Tumbleweed* E2 5b
[Hanging around on Tumbleweed., 3 kb]Start up easy slabs to a step right below the tree of Summer Days. Swing along the ramp and up on jugs to well protected climbing up the groove. Formerly described as poorly protected (with a peg) this is actually very safe despite the demise of the piton runner.

Hard with a hangover. Actually very safe despite the demise of the peg.

Hard move on the headwall, very satisfying to unlock it. Had obligatory heather pulling topout fear.

Pumped and scared at the crux.... must be the first trad day of the year!

lulled into a false sense of security because it was so easy and then BOOM! Suddenly 4 metres of pretty spicy climbing, I thought E2 5c would be fairer.

Bit wet up high but some nice moves, especially fun with the start of the E3 as well...
