Vena Cave-in* E3 5c

Rockfax Description
A trip up the right-hand wall of the cleft with good protection from big cams, the closeness of the opposite wall detracts. Start up Right-hand Tower but trend left up well-separated and rounded breaks, to some particularly stretchy moves. © ROCKFAX

Good route. Felt pumpy today cos really warm and sticky. So it was a fair old fight to hang in and get clean os

No bridging. A cool route with just enough gear and the holds are just adequate. Glad I blagged Phils larger cams so that I was doubled up on them. The finish of Pacemaker was well pumpy after all the other climbing.

Not exactly worked: toproped once to find where it went. Definitive guide description not very helpful. Only realised the correct finish when read (in the Pacemaker description) that it is shared with Pacemakerand the crux is below the shared bit (spent a long time trying the exit too directly). Then led after Colin with his gear in place.
