Early Riser** E5 6a
[Early Riser, Earl Crag, 2 kb]The narrow ramp cutting rightwards up the centre of the face is a classic. Balancy and unprotected - scary stuff. © ROCKFAX
The ramp up the wall left of the small grassy terrace. Delicate bridging and smearing in a generally off balance position seems to work. Low in the grade, but could be a nasty fall! Spotter recommended!

A bit hot, even on Earl. Struggled on the bottom section but was OK on the top bit.
