Didn't think this was as bad as everyone made out. Bit interesting getting to the bottom of the headwall, but the crack's not hard, there are places you can stop briefly in it if you want to, and you can place a cam quite high from below. Definitely 3*

Hardest E2 I've done yet. Sustained throughout, fiddly gear in places and very bouldery getting up the first section and out onto the arete. Lots of cams are needed to protect the route well. The best strategy is to build a bomb-shelter of gear at the bottom section of the crack before you commit to the layback and then crank to the top. Stopping to try and place gear could have dire consequences if you haven't taken care lower down. ****

The bottom was a lot harder than expected, then build a bomb shelter at the base of the top crack and go. Good route.

Such a great climb, a good mixture of balanced, bold and easy, hard and safe sections. As per the guide description; it's great to just place some solid gear at the bottom of the crux and then just run it out to the end.

Stiff for the grade in my opinion. Phil led pulled ropes led on his gear
