Rockfax Description
An excellent eliminate but still fairly direct. Either start up Excursion or slightly to the right. It takes in the crux of the next route before moving left on the upper section. © ROCKFAX

Crux is going to peg. Don't go left into flakes - go up on small holds directly to the peg.
Adam Ellwood - Lead O/S - 26/Jul/11 with Dave Evans

Is this really E4? The hardest bit is the Clear White Light crux. Did I step too far left at top (I moved left via an undercut / flake to gain the weakness with the peg at its top right corner)? If this isn't the way then this is ultra eliminate and very artificial. The E3s to the left (Klondike, P City and S Gold) are all harder than this. Still, very nice clean and open climbing.

Totally inspired to get out and be more confident to get on stuff didn't think I was good enough to get on after getting up this. Really pleased. Cracking route - a real payout. ( :
