Gets e1 in Martin's book and tbh thought it was hard for e1, but I suppose it's the style of climbing. Cool moves though, was trying to rock it out from past the roof with a super high heel

A lot of fun but hard for a small person at the start and on the roof. Just managed to get the gear out on the roof before giving it a good few tries. Managed to get a nice right hand jam in the crack but couldn't get the left hand in anywhere and feet didn't reach any of the holds before falling. Sloped to the right to get to the top, think I finished in the VS. Really good fun though!

Sequence: Firth the right and then both hands on the nose to the right of the crack; Left hand jam as high as possible up the crack; Right heel hook; Right hand reach for the "jug"; Left knee in crack; Left hand up to layback the nose of the crack just below the top; Move right foot to under the body; Right hand up left to layback the nose of the crack.

Ground up. Katherine (patiently) belayed. Stiiv Seconded. Must have taken about 10 slumps onto the gear before finally mounting the roof, with pumped tunnel vision wildly screamed/slapped for the breaks and tried to mantle direct. Fell off. Lowered off. Sulked. Mark nearly cleaned my gear but gave it one last attempt, leaving all my ironmongery helped. Went easy enough. HVS seems fair with bomber gear and a short safe fall. Stiff and very burly in 5b.
