[onsighting MGC, 2 kb]A superb line following the obvious crack over two bulges. Committing moves are needed for the crux moves (easier for the tall). Where the crack stops, mantle onto a ledge for a welcome arm rest before finishing up the pleasantly easing upper slab.

First trad route for years, piss easy for E2, more like HVS/E1 5c. Two very safe trickish moves with a relative amble elsewhere does not add up to E2. Nice warm-up with a hangover.
andy farnell - Lead O/S - Aug/05 with whispering nic

Pretty straight forward pulling up over the two overhangs and the rest is an enjoyable walk!

After all these years I still need to lead this climb.

Really good route for posing - assuming you make it! Entertaining climbing round the roof - good pro.E1 in my guide (Borrowdale 1986) - E2 seems over-inflated.

My first E1. Possibly my first E2 as well.
