Tentative Decisions** E5 6a
[About to make a Tentative Decision..., 2 kb]Good sustained thin climbing above the bolt, with many small wires, rp`s to protect if you can hang around to place them!

This route is possibly going down to E4 in the new guide, but it will be a necky one, cool head required!

Fell 1m from top as it was extremely greasy first attempt at an E5 onsight

cant believe it, I dropped the final move....the last bloody move! pretty big fall onto the large & bomber RP, run out to the bolt is simple on small positive edges above the bolt its sustained but easy 6a still don't believe I fell on the last move.....robbed! abbed for gear still got the g/u for next time

Slate guide gives this and 'remain in light' same grade but this felt at least a grade harder than 'remain in light' to me. Got bit scared!

Both the unprotected moves and the hardest moves are easier than the equivalent unprotected and hard moves on slug club. Whether that makes this E4 or Slug Club E5 for the onsight, I don't know.

Returned to finish the job.. Its ok when you know what to expect.. Marginal gear above bolt.

not to bad, just didn't want to fall off onto anything apart from the bolt (it might have held though)

Nice route, first e5 onsight but it didnt feel e5. Easier than slug club in my opinion

took me a while to get to the top but got there in the end! not sure any of the gear after the bolt would have held but still made it easier to commit.

Didn't see many rp placements but a few small cams. Great climbing, much better than it looks.

Bailed after going a few moves past the bolt, by down climbing then lowering
