A bit bold above bomber gear with relatively easy moves, surely not e5? Good climbing though....

Flash. Fun climbing, felt bold above the bomber nut/cam and was really pumped after such a short hard section.

Had a look and it went well. The last gear is good. Nice climbing.

I saw the holds whilst abbing down after a previous route, so not a true on sight. I guess that makes it a "flash"?

Twice. Not keen to lead though, I think doing the crux static would be hard and it isn't like you can fall off...

First E5!! Long time coming - felt surprisingly relaxed on the run out and once past the point of no return it all came together. Good gear not too far below you and positive holds all the way. Not a true onsight as abbed down and cleaned the holds after Gnome but close enough for me! Easy for grade, more like hard 5c than 6a...

Got it after a few goes on the top rope - first E5, now just need to get one O/S. 16 Aug 08 - Decided to give it a try after abbing off after climbing Gnome, so saw some of the moves and gear. Commited to the bold climbing and got to within 8" of the final jugs (didn't know they were jugs) and downclimbed till just above the gear. Properly terrified, probably shouldn't even have attempted it! SOOOO Close!
