Great Feat/Mean Feat** E1 5b

Rockfax Description
Start 5m right of Asahel in a grassy bay. Move up leftwards over a bulge and follow quartz holds to a groove. Shuffle left until below the prominent upper groove of Mean Feat and climb directly up to it. Ascend the impressive V-groove to a ledge and move up right to another ledge and then up the tricky wall to the top. © ROCKFAX

First E1. Guide suggested just one pitch, but we split it at the obvious point below the steep crack. Led P1. Nice rock.

Did the first section but the Mean Feat corner was wet so found another way to the top round the arete.

Graham Iles - Lead - 04/Jun/11 with Neil Stabbs

Nice climbing: slightly bold start followed by a classy corner that demands care.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 30/Apr/11

In one big awesome pitch, finishing up the arete on the left of the top ledge provides a 'the axe'-like climax.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 21/Feb/11 with jordan senior

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 20/Feb/11

Lead P1. Pretty bold teeter around to the left after the initial mantle. Absolutely shitting myself, loved it!

dan gibson - Lead O/S - 29/Jun/10

Very good route done in 1 big pitch. It's one of the obvious lines of the crag. It's slabby, a little run out, strenous and well protected all in one route :) ps there is now a very good insitu wallnut (7) towards the top of the groove :(
