Haven't climbed in two months, felt really uncomfortable on this climb that I usuLly cruise. Need to get some more mileage to get my mojo back!!

Spaced gear at the bottom. Nice climbing all the way up.

My first e1, some colourful language was used above gear :)

West Country Climbs gives this E1 5b. I did think it was a bit stiff for that grade. E2 5c is about right IMO. Much harder than Sacre Coeur too for me. Great conditions as wind direction to north made the top section feel okay.

I award myself 1 official onsight point. No guidebook, just picked the line. Thought it would be about VS. Didn't realise the gear would be so rubbish, due to to odd, flared shapes of the placements. I either climbed this or 'Lord Lucan is Missing' or a mix of the two.
