Lazy Day*** E5 5c
[Solo ascent Lazy Day E5 5c., 3 kb]20m.

Rockfax Description
The fine jutting pillar is the best route on the cliff, though sadly the ancient bolts that protect it turn the whole thing into a bit of a worry-fest. The final roof is quite tough but at least this section has some proper runners. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A superb bold route up the arete with good moves and a no hands rest near the top! Finish through the middle of the roof on the big dirty jug! Avoid the old bolts to the left.

Must say very surprised at grade but i guess if you lack a strong head I guess it's justifiable. The line is clearly the best looking line of the crag and worth while for anyone. Every move is static and well controlled. Was going to lead it but tbh solo was simpler since the top is fair safe when sequence is found. My first grit route.

Fine moves, non existent gear = would only lead if 100% sure not gonna fall as would be serious!

Those bolts need chopping. And E5? easiest one I've ever done (no clipping). E4 5c.

TR out of curiosity, climbing seemed 5c, but bolts look terrible, can't believe they reduce the grade to a e3 tick!!

Lovely climb, sunny day, not as hard as appears, but that's easy to say on a top rope. Good lead matt
