What a struggle. Got to the crux, couldn't commit. Got grumpy, lowered off, got even more grumpy, and finally did it. Then fell off just as the crack eased a bit. One of those days.

the previous nights heavy rain meant that not only were the inside of the cracks wet but water was also running down the surface in some important places.managed to get through were Joe fell but my hand slipped in the wet crack while trying to remove the gear he had fallen on,really struggled to finish the rest of the route and only just made it

Forgot that this is really quite hard. Bill found it easy and cruised it - beast! Excellent route.

Getting established into wet crack felt very hard and worked for dry foot holds.Very sustained thereafter and great value. Rounded top soaking and bellyflopped over.One 2nd couldn't follow and the other struggled.Would not have surprised me if it had been an E2 5C. An E2 5B at least ?

After more than a year since my onsight attempt of this climb, it finally went, so scared near the top, the saga for this climb is over yay!!! Good crack climbing and some good footwork required, was quite wet today, seems to pool through this climb!!!

Pumpy and satisfying but a bit goey for E1? Hot tip is to rack your cams (1.5 to 2.5 friends in particular) on the RHS of your harness, not the left like I usually do.

wow, what a climb!very pumped with no rest untill just below the top.

With one fall, pumped out of my mind. Crux not too hard but the upper crack is very sustained and just keeps coming and coming. Bit like Aviation, but harder. Very good climb.

Getting very dirty in the upper crack - loads more mud and flowers in there! Still fab though
