Evil Eye*** E5 6b

Rockfax Description
High standard climbing centred on the narrow tapering corner right of Kafoozalem's crack-line. Start at a huge spike of rock.
Gain a flat ledge under a severely overhanging corner from either the left or right and climb it to a junction with Kafoozalem. Climb the narrow corner to its end and pull right with difficulty to less steep ground. Move up to an overhang, pull around this and take the wall above to a ledge and finish leftwards. © ROCKFAX

Took a great whipper after running it out through the crux. Was basically bridged on footholds in slightly the wrong place, popped my foot up and one slipped off and I tool the ride. Went back from a hands off, and sipped off again at the crux. Pulled back on from by the hands off again and did it.

Great route. Initial corner is by far the hardest bit. E5 6b I thought.

With Simon from France on BMC international meet. Got spat out very low down and decided it was time to go to the pub. Simon flew up it!
