βeta: Not sure how reachy (I'm 5'9" with a plus 3 ape index) unprotected 5b moves doesn't warrant E1. Once the shelf is gained the route becomes no harder than severe, probably best treated as a boulder problem.

gethin_allen 10 Apr, 2010 Lead O/S placed loads on micro nuts in the crack but not sure if they were worth placing as i'd have probably hit the floor anyway if i'd fallen.

masa-alpin 26 Apr, 2008 Lead O/S I, being short, sruggled to reach the crux hold - more like 6a move for me, but managed cleanly in the end. But this route is from Joe Brown, so no excuse!
