Matthew Ferrier - Lead O/S - 27/Nov/13 with Nick
Found it quite hard for E1 so would say E2 is correct. I haven't done many E2's so I don't have much to compare to. Oh and used knees getting onto the block.

Avoided the aręte for stretchy crux but moved right off block for penultimate move, but was so pumped falling was a cert otherwise. Only E1 that way I reckon, and HVS if you use the arete for crux. Blinkers needed for E2 tick. Not done many eliminates and routes like this remind me why I shouldn't bother. Nice crux move tho.

Never too hard but there's a longish move between breaks and the arms needed a good shakeout at the rest below the top wall. Nice finish.

confirmed view that its a good E2 5c (lowish in grade) if you stick to the line. Anywhere near the arete or the groove in it is well off-route.

Backed off in the past and downclimbed... Different story today. Both this and the other 'so-called' E2 5c today felt soft, although both had added spice. In this case it came in the form of blustery gales and spits of rain throughout the crux section. Mmmmm, nice to be back on grit eh?

Tough climb (it says E1-5c in my book), got to the last section, but had to escape onto Blizzard Ridge... Pumped out.
AndyM-LVB - Lead dnf - 11/Oct/08 with Brendan Ferguson
very worthwhile - with relatively sustained climbing and good moves especially the one going over the protruding flake at the top. very hard to stay away from the arete - cant see how it can be climbed at the grade without occasional use of stuff on / near the arete?

A difficult one to grade - very easy to escape (unfortunately!) onto Blizzard Ridge and the height factor changes the grade, though the bottom section is quite bold either way, and it keeps going after the long stretches. E1+1/2??

One rest above crux due to pump and being slow to work out the next couple of moves. I think this is definitely worth E2 - the crux was certainly harder than you would expect on an E1 in any case and it doesnt let up quickly afterwards. Perhaps people voting E1 used too many of the holds on Blizzard Ridge without realising, which it is certainly easy to do...
