Grace Under Pressure* E1 5b
[Grace Under Pressure, 4 kb]A tapering chimney. Not much gear for first half of the route so quite a bold start. Reaching the half-height undercling is the end of major difficulties.

Pat-H - Lead O/S - 12/Jun/15 with Masa

The gear in the first half, particularly the initial section, was less than ideal, while the climbing was harder.

Huge block pulled from top by second. Would have been really serious on the lead. Also placed no gear till after crux.
