The Bloods** 7a+
25m. The original line up this bit of wall but not as good as its left-hand neighbour. The small corner leads easily to the ledge and bulge (this section needs wires). Step left and pull over for a rapid finish. © ROCKFAX
Climbs up to the left hand side of the pod/niche and makes a scary clip before you hit the crux... Powerful moves up the flake lead to a scary mini run out on positive holds to gain easier ground above to where the route finally eases out to about 6b+ climbing Just a little awkward move at the top to gain the chains..... Fantastic positions!

Expected to fall again especially as I got boxed on Axle Attack! Gave it everything and luckily the runouts get easier the higher you get. Why can't I onsight E4 at the moment!?!? Think today will help me click into 'go for it' mode on the onsights of E4s once you know the gear is good just go for it.
