Great route. First section is steep jug pulling to a nice kneebar rest; Spent a long time after this trying to fathom the crux. Took a fall on my first attempt at the crux. Lowered and pulled the ropes through and led ground up on my second attempt. A subtle dip of the right knee and sidepull seemed to make the difference. A route of two halves: steep jug pulling followed by a balancing rock over using slopers. Brilliant.

Got to crux and fooled about for ages, then fell off after my desperate final efforts dint work. Had full body pump and curled up in the foetal position for 5 min at the bottom, mark tried the lead but couldn't get it either. Abbed for gear and what 2 ascents will nail it now i know.

Failed onthis over a year. Nice to go back and do it ok. Think its worth 5c though, the move is very unusal and hard to read - UK grades are for an onsight! And also E1.

First E1. Utterly gripped. Pulling onto the slab I popped my shoulder out but carried on anyway.
jonnybull - Lead β - 2006
Interesting finish, after travesing into the "bad" rest (it isn't, but requires flexibility). Not sure whether to traverse out right from this, or up and then step right. I did the top finish, and it seems E1 5c ish.
