Weasels Rip My Flesh*** E4 6a
[High up on 'Weasels rip my flesh', 2 kb]48m.

Rockfax Description
A fantastic hidden gem. Start near the base of a rounded rib, below a peg. Move up to the peg and make a hard pull up and right past this to a jug. The route now turns more balancy and slate-esque. Move up and left on pocketed rock to a thread, before heading more directly up to easier ground and a crack on the right. © ROCKFAX

after Alex, gear in. Feels bold heading up to thread, small cam seemed reasonable we thought. Thread in good nick. Felt crux was gaining first jug at the start. Immaculate rock and setting.

Since the peg snapped. Crucial size 1 3CU cam needed before the thread. Still E4.

I'm afraid I have snapped the second peg in a fall! I haven't been back up to check out the situation but it looks like a clean snap. A replacement or other gear may be possible. This might make that upper section particularly runout, putting you well into the deck out zone. Sorry guys! :(

Despite feeling very unconfident after the morning's spanking I decided to lead this after James. slight worrying section below the thread where James had placed a cam where a good hold was, but as I hadn't placed the cam I wasn't sure how good it actually was. The run-out is great, all there but you still have to climb. Soft E4

Went straight for this, should have warmed up first. Took a while to actually get into climbing and make the first move but once I did I was away. Nice little route.

Savage crux! Route was chalked which was useful on the midsection. Chuffed with this!
AJM - Lead O/S - 12/Jul/13 with Crispin Cooper

Took E3 start to save the E4 for another day. Still hard for E3 I reckon.

definitely run out, don't think you would hit the deck but it is exciting

Hard reachy crux for me, the rest was wonderful and not really that bold.
richardr - Lead O/S - 02/Jul/11

Direct start. One of the best trad pitches I've been on this year. E4 for me, whatever way you start (not aware of any other E3s about with a similar run out). Perfect climbing above the thread, lures you on and would be tough to reverse, plus there really is no gear. Small cams worthwhile on this, also superlight rocks might give 1 or 2 really good placements. Soaking at the top, interesting!

Good route. Climbing is straight forward enough, not too run out either! Would be a nicer route without thread!

A one-star line with three-start moves. A bit contrived at the start if you avoid the crack but the central pocketed section is fantastic.
