E2? Bit generous given you stand on the ledge, empty your rack into the rock and then make one tricky move (easy for 5c?) - but then I was on second so my opinion is not valid!
Stroppy - 2nd O/S - 15/Aug/15 with Roger Kirke

Kevin had cleaned gear so could concentrate on the climb. Went direct up face at crux with jam for right hand right foot on face and high left foot in break before big reach to next break. Right foot slipped off - drat! Got back on and did it.

Depends on how you do this. Direct up the front not using aret may be e2 5c, using any of the arÍte is e1 5B. Quite good whatever al beit a bit contrived. First half of Old Salt brilliant anyway.

Pre placed gear after Nick did it, but it is was all placed off the massive ledge anyway.

couldn't make the long reach at the top and lost psyche and packed it in, finished up valediction.
Teappleby - Lead dnf - 14/May/14 with Nick Priestley, Calum Wadsworth

First ever e2!
Nye Meerkat - Lead O/S - 10/Mar/14

Okay, felt pretty good. Bottom was a little run out and theres a big reach without doing to technical footwork for shorties. The tops awesome, ending up doing a ride-um-cowboy finish because I couldn't make the reach between the breaks.

Nick F Smith - Lead O/S - 27/Jul/13 with Sam Brown

Only really one or two hard moves but because Old Salt is such a good route anyway this variation finish to it makes a really good route overall. Certainly feels 5c if you tackle the little roof pretty directly and don't go reaching round the arÍte too much.

Led on pre-placed gear from a mates ascent. Not sure if i did this right. Mate yarded up from break to break but I needed to use the arete above valediction.

On Robs gear to save cleaning it on ab. Completely different sequence used at the top. Avoided shoving a foot in Valediction.

One trick move really, very much soft for the grade. Fun though!

Good lead by Michael, my first clean E2 second. Pretty easy moves up beginning of Old salt, but if I was a couple of inches shorter, would have been much harder! Then layback round the arete, then I found a hold further around the back of the arete, and rocked over on a really high left foot for a big reach to the top!
