A classic bold route up the truncated crack and scoop above. Positive climbing up the crack leads to the break. Step up and left to a good rest and okay gear at the base of the runnel and contemplate what lies ahead. Several metres of precarious balancing and fear lead to salvation in a scoop out right. Continue leftwards more easily to finish.

Really good. Thought the groove looked easy. It wasn't! Or maybe the run out was getting to me.

E4? It's E5 in all the guides and I think E5 too.
willackers - Lead β - 03/Jun/09 with Cassidy, Stu, DAbeast

Never desperate climbing for E5 but quite bold in places, not E4 to the E4 leader in my opinion.
Cassidy - Lead O/S - 03/Jun/09 with Will, SBCD

E5 in the guide. Probably deserves this for boldness. Would make a hard E4?
Nicolas Duboust - Lead O/S - 03/Jun/09 with will alan stuart

E5 me thinks!! Unless 40% of the E5's iv done are actually E4! Same grade as Freddy and Washington alternative start! Both E5 at same crag!
