Phoenix** E2 5c
[Paul Ingham on the Direct Finish to Phoenix, East Buttress of Scafell. 1978., 4 kb]2 pitches. 1. 5c. From the ramp belay attack the hand crack and the awkward bulge above to a good rest.The dirty groove above is desperate and leads to a poor resting position below a sustained and delightful groove. At the top of this an easy traverse leads to an easy ramp and belay.
2. 5b. Descend the ramp a little and climb the lovely delicate wall to easier ground. Climb the easy cracks up the right wall to the right arete and sanctuary.

The first pitch is a gruesome struggle and hard 5c. Sustained with some high quality climbing up the groove. Pitch 2 starts well up the delicate wall.
