Rockfax Description
(The Swedish Corner) The left-hand of two deep grooves is a popular testpiece. An awkward start leads to easier bridging. Make a hard move to gain the upper corner and a sprint for the top. © Rockfax

Took some guts to leave to good stance and go to the slopers which are worse then I remembered. Went for the lieback the first few moves and then stemmed my way up.

Would agree with an E2 grade, good climb. One hard move moving off the slab into the main crack with some nice sequences at the beginning

Cruxy move on thin hands getting into the main corner - good stemming required! Straightforward otherwise.

Beautiful grit sized climb of extreme quality. Has one extremely well protected (easy to place runners) 5c move and the rest is sustained 5a but with rests so soft E2 and miles from being E3.

Repeat climb after seconding Gav. Should really have led on-sight as it wasn't that hard with crux being well protected.

Pip lead to try to prove she can climb, but not really E3. Hard move at start. Technical move a half height but well protected then lovely laybacking.

An amazing route, incredibly sustained. Very pleased with myself to get it clean, even though I was seconding.

Really strong line. Very easy climbing, one hard pull, followed by easy climbing. Uber classic though No way E3. Soft E2 5c.

Clare set off up it and couldn't do the crux so aided to the top. She abbed for gear. After being bitten on the legs and downclimbing the 1st awkward section I did it. Clipping two stuck wires I did the crux section, almost barn-dooring at the crux. A really cool hard move followed by brilliant and interesting climbing for the rest of the route. Really good. My first e3

Fell off the crux. Lowered off, pulled the ropes, got it second go.
