[Lovely slab, 2 kb]An eliminate climbing directly up the slab and over the bulge from the start of Jolly Green Dwarf (which is more like HVS). Reputedly much harder than this (E2 6a?).

Delightful padding with plenty of friction. I think E1 is a bit steep. Not long enough for a route.

5c is about right. People saying E1 are on crack.

Claiming this an an E1. Took 4 solo falls before finally sending it! Put my spotter down as partner because he did an awesome job.

It looks like a romp from the ground but the route totally changes from leaving the ledge. Felt more E1-ish.. No gear and a very committing couple of moves above a crap landing..

Pure faith in friction for both your hands and feet - absolutely awesome.

Did this on a top rope after Jolly Green Dwarf. Loved it. Definitely E1, totally unprotected, would have sh*t myself on lead/solo!!!

Top Roped previously thought i had it in the bag until i soled it. Got the tips of my fingers on the top ledge and slipped, cheese grated down to the fall. So mad i got straight back on and fell from the same place. It stung in the shower later lol. Love this route
