Easy climbing for HVS but not much gear at the top. Also, a very nasty topout, pulling on a small branch!

Good route with technical climbing. Keep left on the arete and don't follow the tempting ramp to the right. The climbing is in the top half and is run out, though there is a pocket which takes a wire if you can find it.

Seems there are different options both to start and finish this...all at about the same grade. Had to use the two perfect pockets at the top so went that way

Terrifying, but only because it was wet and I was worried about slipping off the whole way up. The moves were fine, and it's probably much nicer in the dry.

Needed some small wires for confidence on the tricky moves above the tree.

D Berry 22/May/10 Lead O/S

Good line, but a shame about the dirt on the holds, which is bordering on the rather unpleasant by the time you get to the top. Still very pleased with the on sight of this one.

with Claire Berry
JPGR 15/May/10 Lead O/S

Ok climb, but dirty in places. The top needs a lot more traffic,mix of lots of mud and loose rock. knocked down a very large rotten tree which broke my Belayer's Ankle! Worst top out I've done at Shorn Cliff!

Wilbur 21/Mar/10 Lead dog

First lead fall - went about 20 feet when a foothold broke on the top-out. Was avoiding more obvious footholds as a lot of it was wet (had done the adjacent E1 which shares this finish previously and remembered it being tricky when dry and in good nick!). Good to take the fall and happy that i'd put the 'just in case' piece in! Annoyed about not getting the tick but these things happen. As for the route? Quite nice if a bit of a non-line and very bold in the top third - about 20 ft run-out...

with Caine
Stone Muppet 13/Mar/10 Lead O/S

I don't think this is runout really, and I'm usually the first to run away from bold lines. Gear is never far away if you look for it.

First HVS. Despite comments below, line is obvious (the rib) and nice slabby climbing. Quite run out. Satisfying climb.

A loose, muddy and generally unpleasant topout at the moment. The rest of the route has a very vague line, I'm not sure it was worth a star.
