Pleased with this one, when I seconded it years ago I couldn't do the crux and thought the top slab was scary. All OK today - took two attempts to work the crux out, nearly failed due to being pumped. Top slab lovely. NB the peg under the roof is still there.

'ard crux struggled to reach a hold, had to have a rest, seconding too, what! Can't remember when last had to rest seconding.

P1. Really enjoyed this although was expecting better gear for an E1, especially for crux first bit.
Gudge - AltLd O/S - 24/Jun/14 with Bob Pilgrem

Chris lead crux first pitch- not much gear for E1- and peg no longer under roof.The bubbly slab/wall above is excellent.

This was my first clean 5c lead. Cracking route. Strenuous lower half then a seriously photogenic arete. I thought it was at least as good as golden slipper and capella.
