High Life** E1 5b
[Henry on High Life, 3 kb]63m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An excellent rising traverse which is a great way to experience this face, giving good exposure at a reasonably friendly grade.
1) 5a, 42m. From the ledge of Quoin, climb diagonally rightwards to a small ledge. Traverse right to a spike, then move up a little before continuing right to stance in the groove of Wavelength.
2) 5b, 20m. Traverse the break rightwards to reach a flake up which you finish. © ROCKFAX

Did a variation, thinking I was heading to the visible cave and Preposterous tales. Reversed for gear, Pitch one mostly. Nice climbing though.
Kevster - Lead O/S - 18/Apr/14 with Tony Johnson

Nice route but the description gives it away. I found getting into the the niche the crux. Worth doing
PaulTanton - AltLd O/S - 11/Oct/13 with Ken McBride

P1 only, as P2 was too wet. Finished up the Wavelength.

Led the second pitch, more intimidating and a bit harder than I was expecting, great climbing on the traverse.

Rachel Slater - AltLd O/S - 06/Apr/12 with Chi Huo Cheng

Matthew Robinson - AltLd - 11/Aug/11 with Jon

Lead first (and most of second) pitch in one, final bit of the traverse felt tough at E1. Really good climb.

Phil PBC - AltLd O/S - 25/Jun/11 with henry castle

Nice route with an obvious line up the crag on razor sharp flakes and spikes. long quickdraws recomended on teh fisrt pitch. The second pitch devates from the natural line of the route but with a commiting traverse on flow stone holds it does not fail to dissapoint.
A Crook - AltLd O/S - 28/May/11 with Dave Almond

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 17/Apr/11

Led P2 - spicy!
Different Steve - AltLd O/S - 31/Aug/10 with Guy Reid

Lovely steady rising traverse with good holds and gear. Finished up the first of the exit opportunities. Worth the trip

i got the second pitch - which is suprisingly commiting i think for E1. holds are there though, they just need finding!
