Welcome to the Cruise >>
|20m. The striking arete between Welcome to the Cruise and Diverticulitis. Bold move to the first piton (E4 if you extend the peg), and good exposure on the upper section. A little desperate if you are short; probably 6b E5|

Took ages to man-up to the crux move -felt like a guaranteed barn-door. After that the upper arete is great fun - nice delicate climbing. Definitely felt E5 to me...

Best Route in the quarry! Bold move at start to get first peg and its still got some surprises after that! Thought E56A would be fairer grade!
