Traversed in to avoid crux...

Nice conditions considering it had just rained. A bit pumper than it looked from below, and wasn't sure whether to use the arÍte or not. V windy at the top.

Not quite the soft touch I expected having read the comments on here. I suspect those climbers who think it is HVS were using holds around the arÍte which unfortunately is quite tempting.

Quite soft for E1, though would be worth three stars if some of the holds didn't feel as snappy. Nice moves.

Everyone else had left the crag due to a sudden midge swarm. I wanted to have a first attempt at an E1 though, this was a mistake. It isn't ideal for a climber to be pushing their grade whilst both they, and their belayer are swatting midges. Took a fall on the first crux. Finished the rest of the climb using a hold on the arete for the 1st crux, and veering off to the left.

Lovely climb. Certainly easy in the grade, although having said I foolishly attempted the same reachy mid move through the thin holds to the arete like Matt & Charlie forgetting they have at least 1 foot on me height wise and came off. Just careless on my part. Great climb. Great rock. Fucking long walk in on a hot morning.

With a brief rest cos I was pumped by the time I got to the crimpy move. As with all my leads at the top of my grade, a good dose of just getting on with it would have probably done the trick. Although I want it to be E1, you're never far from a decent rest and bomber cams, so HVS seems fair.
treg - Lead dog - 25/Jun/12 with Rachel
First E1 (Three Pebble Slab excepting) and yes a bit soft but good to get on the board. Nice route with good holds.

Really reachy! There's some good gear, but the floors looking rather close by the time the crux moves come. If you don't hit the ledge on the right, you'd probably be fine, which you probably wouldn't. It's got a really nice move on small crimps reaching up and right to a hold near the arete. Then up and right things ease.

Very nice, but HVS at best.
To the six footer who says he could only just reach the holds, I am rather shorter, and had to do a bit more to get to the holds. Still not E1, by a good bit.
