Bailed early on, needs a clean and a better day for me.

Excellent lower arÍte feels quite high on the crux, no mats. Tough and bold E2 5c** as per guide.

Alex did the original but figured I might as well try the harder start. Well worth coming back for when I'm feeling bolder!

Climbed in terrible style with pre-practice accompanied by pre-placed & pre-clipped gear in the sweaty July rain.

An excellent climb. More technical than reachy start followed by increasing boldness through gradually easing moves, to welcome gear and 4c/5a romping. A really solid ascent for me, thanks to good inspiration
