17 years after declaring this to be easy it felt desperate.

Was tempted to get James to pull the gear and lead it myself, but as he said - "The unknown is now known." Top route.

Downclimbed from half way up when I realised my shoes were too dirty to smear after spending ages digging all the mud out of the cracks lower down. I figured someone had gardened the overgrown corner to the right and thrown all the debris down the lower half of edgehog. Very dissapointed as I've been wanting to get on this for a while, at least I've still got the onsight.

Felt so much easier to second than 9 years ago (man I'm getting old!), cruisy....never 6a and not the same grade as Crack Attack.

A perfect arete and one of my first E3's, awesome stuff. Probably more like 5c...

Felt like a Stanage E2. I don't really see why this merits inclusion in Extreme Rock. Nothing special.
