I’d seconded this a few years ago. I remember not wanting to lead it then so I don’t know what made me today. Good climbing to a horrendous top out. The sloppers felt too dirty today so I went for the layback the scrittley edge with your feet 6 inches from you hands method. With my arse in the air and a lot of swearing, all very undignified.

Really dirty at top and a hard last move made this an epic top-out with a bit of beached whaling! This last move is hard for 5c. Rest of route is steady enough though a bit run out in the middle. Nice moves on lower wall.

A great climb but with a very hard crux that leaves you with a (clean) 10-12 foot lob (onto v good gear) if you fluff it as I did the first time. It also quite bold in the middle - all in all much more like E3 than E2, especially compared to other Peak Grit E2s/E3s.

Nearly had it, belly was over the top and right foot popped off. Good clean fall. Lowered off and got it second go. Lovely sequence to top section.

Really hard! Couldn't dream of leading it. The rounded top out was horrific, managed to do it with a not so graceful belly flop. My hardest second so far.
