Catrin* E2 5c
[Catrin., 2 kb]20m.

Rockfax Description
A great route that feels more trad than sporty as gear is usually placed to reach the first bolt. Climb up the flake to the tree, move left past a bolt to a tiny groove. Follow this past a second bolt, and exit via Alive and Kicking. © ROCKFAX

After doing alive and kicking thought I might as well do this too. Very good route more sustained and more run out good for getting my head into slate.

fingery crux sequence, not quite a sport route

Desperate middle section next to the two bolts. Not a sport route.

Second bolt clip is tricky and mid move (at least at my height it was), so I'd say it deserves the E-grade as per the guidebook.
kyaizawa - Lead O/S - 26/Jul/13 with Luke Cullum

Cool technical sequence
Daniel Heath - Lead O/S - 21/Jun/13 with Hayden Richards

Couldnt pass the crux. seems i picked the wrong route to try as my first attempt on slate! Very tough move by the second bolt.

E1 5c maybe? Climbing at the top is bold but much easier than the crux which is next to bolts.

Nothing like F6a. E1 6a (F6b+) would be more appropriate given the old-school slate bolting.
