Klondyke Wall** E2 5c
[Classic Bowden, 3 kb]Climb round the curving overlap and continue up the wall until forced right to use the edge of Canada Crack to exit. © ROCKFAX
PLEASE DO NOT PLACE GEAR IN THE DUBIOUS FLAKE, AS IN SOME COMMENTS BELOW. It won't hold a fall anyway, and this is why Bowden is increasingly broken.

First E2, easier than I was expecting. Everything flowed very nicely. The flake on the right hand side felt a little dodgy.
blackreaver - Solo β - 09/Mar/14 with Rob, Tom L

jazzyjackson - 2nd - 10/Feb/14 with stuart

A couple of bits of psychological gear behind the flake. Felt like the whole flake would come off if tested. Crux low down and felt steady stuff above.

highball. no runners on this one. would describe as straightforward rather than easy.
