Orpheus* E2 5b
54m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An exciting climb starting at two quartz bands.
1) 5b, 24m. Move diagonally left to a ledge and climb the small groove and flake that arcs up and right. Traverse right for 4m from the flake to a good perch on the arete. Climb up the steep and sustained wall (fiddly gear) to the overhang. Pass this left of centre, up onto the slab above and follow this to a spike belay at its top right.
2) 5a, 15m. Climb the diagonal crack rightwards across the short wall to the arete and climb easily to a small bay. From the right side of the bay, move right and head straight up the arete to the top of the pedestal.
3) 5b, 15m. Move right and climb the crack into the overhanging groove, follow this to the top. © ROCKFAX

Felt very easy for E2. Perhaps not having to worry about gear helps??

Led P1+3. Pitch one is awesome, not too bold and not too bad. Great to be after work cragging! Lovely Jubbly.

Great little route. Pitch one is steep but good holds all the way. Cams give decent protection. Decent lower off at top of p.3
