Grim Reaper* E3 5c
[Doug on Grim Reaper, 3 kb]17m.

Rockfax Description
Technically challenging moves on excellent rock. Start at a flowstone curtain below a tiny corner in the lower wall.
Climb to a good flowstone hold and thread and continue to a ledge below an open groove in the upper wall. Climb the groove, past a peg, to a small nut just before the top and finish with care onto grass. Tree belay. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Start below the 2nd ledge of stalactite. Climb flowstoneflake feature direct to right hand edge of large ledge; a long reach and akward mantle gain this. Balance and bridge upwards to peg runner (back up micro wire in flake) where hard moves up and left gain a spike and a rest. One last hard move leads up and right to a grassy top out and tree belay.

First E2! Scary crux at the top led to pulling on grass to top out!
Will Mortimer - Lead O/S - 07/Dec/14 with Derwood

nice climbing, particularly the first section!
dbrooks - Lead O/S - 07/Dec/14 with Will

Very easy for E3! E2 is more like it. Nice little route though.
Graham Westbrook - Lead O/S - 26/Sep/14

Nice couple of moves, but the exit is quite dirty. Might be worthwhile having a belay rope on the top.
francois - TR O/S - 17/Sep/14 with Tommaso, Chawn

E2 5b
Mr Tickle - Lead O/S - 09/Jul/14 with RusseyB

Good route. Probably soft E2 5b but still worth a visit.

Good interesing climbing all the way to the good hold, but couldn't do the move from there on - either need more reach/gas or a completely different approach...

The rock was dry at last, but I still cocked up the final moves by falling off, but nailed it next attempt!

Top groove very wet. Climbed clean, no falls, no rests. But felt more like 6a because of the conditions!

Um, can't really claim the tick as it turns out a hold has recently broken off resulting in a jug where the crux was previously. Maybe E1/2 5b in current state depending on how much you trust the gear?
