The Turkey Chant** E2 5c
[TURKEY CHANT!  niki who?  , 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
The fourth pitch on The East Face of Vivian. Move up the wall, there are holds up there and they are good. Once level with the first bolt, make a step left to clip it and carry on moving up and left to the second bolt. Crux moves up and left lead to a two-bolt lower-off. One bolt is over the top of the crag. © ROCKFAX

Really cool little route! Hardest at the top
JamesWilliams - 2nd O/S - 31/May/15 with Adam Revill, jamesA

Nice route well worth doing, not as bold as it looks from below. Hard moves to the belay
adamre12 - Lead O/S - 31/May/15 with JamesWilliams

Brilliant moves. Hard 5c moves at the top and a great run out start (you wouldn't want to fall here due the the ledge below) making it a typical slate trad route. Excellent!

Bold up to the first bolt and inbetween bolts, but only for 1 or 2 moves each time.
DanielGyi - Lead O/S - 10/Aug/13 with Hamish Legge

Absolutely lovely moves! Just a shame it isnt twice as long. Would give it F6a rather than an E grade though; bolts are sufficient and the fall would be clean
