Weird Sister** E3 5c
[mark getting the real earnshugh experience, 3 kb]Start to the right of the classic E5, Necromancer, turn the roof on its right and traverse the lip leftwards to the belay of Necromancer and follow it over the next roof. Traverse right towards Pterodactyl before clipping a good peg. Pull over onto the steep slab and follow the arete on its left side. Belay as for Pterodactyl. Follow the vague crack between Necromancer and Bat's Belfry to finish.

Wow! P1 is pretty sustained whilst placing gear in the vertical crack before th traverse. Pulling over the roof onto the slab is awesome!

Led p.1 (hard 5a). Led p.2 clean on in-situ gear (wild!) Johannes led p.3 o/s. Pretty psyched to have got this one. Fantastic in the sun at 8am.

quite an outing! pitch 1 feels harder than 5a, pitch 2 is wicked! and the final crack is deceptive.
