I was expecting the route to be better, mostly pretty easy moves with one tricky section and obviously no gear. Waste of time! - Edit - might have gone the wrong way? :s

Pure pleasure. Gear appears after half height - brass offsets, medium wires, a tied-off iron bar, and two tricams in shot holes.

Don't fall off! First half to the broken area is a solo. There's some gear on the second half though, including a folded over number 6 nut in a shot hole (number 7 would work as well) which took a while to extract so might have held! Not that hard - a lot of 4c with a bit of 5a - but mildly exciting.

We picked this as an escape rather than ascending the path. Probably not the wisest choice but it was good fun none the less.

Tri-cam in shot hole is reassuring. Good route, very run out.

VERY Bold..! Surely should be at least E2 with only 2, poss 3 pieces of gear in 40m..!

with Norman Clacher
Sebastien Gastaud 28/Sep/11 Lead O/S

First protection was 7 metres from the ground (small sling around a small flake), and the next piece was a dodgy nut (Yellow DMM offset) at 18 metres. I then placed at last a medium cam 25m from the ground, before starting the Richard of York finish. The minimal choice of protection makes it harder than E1, but the technical grade is definitely a 5a in my opinion.

Cragrat Rich 30/Apr/11 Lead O/S

Finished up the Richard of York way. Obviously bold but very steady moves between large ledges. Felt hard 5a to me in places really, but I think it's deceptive because of how much pressure there is. Seconds shouldn't try to grade it!
