National Diploma in Outdoor Education* E3 6b
[Headpointing National Diploma in Outdoor Education at Roche Rock., 4 kb]8m. Hard start to a reachy finish and a very nasty landing. The only gear is above the main difficulties. From the left hand side of the face (around the arete from Tregagle's Buttress), pull up into the short crack on the right and finish up the pockets above.

Felt very easy, 5c at most.

Headpoint. Finally done it. Bit of a odd route. The crux of a couple of hard UK 6b moves up to the fragile jug would be a bit of a hard on-sight for the average E3 leader I think, with a broken leg quite possible even off of the very first move. Probably some good gear high up (in a useful hold), where it's all about 5a from there. One for the regular V3/4 on-sighters. Course I headpointed it, so my opinion is a bit distorted.

Finally linked, but got ring finger A2 pulley injury in the process - shit. Looks like the solo might be a way off still then, if ever.

Hmmmm... That overhang is tougher than it looks from below. :-(
