Cleaned the top. Steady highball font 6b, very good - and not as scary as plenty of other 'problems' at Dumby!

Ground up.

No pads, prolly not going to get a more doable E5. Not hard at all past the first move

On my own it felt a bit spicy, and quite dirty in places.

Never went beyond the second horizontal hold before thanks to being a Jessie. Manned up today though with plenty of pads and beta. Not at all bad in the end

Couple of goes to do the first move then did the rest first time! Worldclass! Didn't find it that difficult.

high ball boulder, about 5 mats, 4 spotters and still shat it.

Wee bit soft for E56b. Thought Shaddow was harder and scarier and ths 'Apparently' E3 now! Good route though. Would feel harder if holds werent clean and covered in chalk I am sure!

Fell with my hand on the top! 2nd go, gutted.
willackers - Solo RP - 17/Aug/08 with Scottish John

Second attempt once established on the wall. Probably not 6b, and not E5 with mats. Highball V3?
Fultonius - Sent x - 08/Aug/08

high but easy by the time the height comes into it. 1 pad.
