Misha 11 Sep, 2016 Lead O/S Steady enough once I remembered how to climb slate - trust those feet and ignore the screaming finger tips! The crux is one short sequence just past the first bolt, after that it's 5b/c. The 5c given here is a bit stingy, thought the crux move merited 6a. Did the top section last year as part of the E4 but good to do it again.

philhilo 31 Jul, 2016 Lead dog Crux seemed hard for 6a until I figured it out after a few attempts. Fantastic climbing, all the way, it might be bolts but it isn't sport!

kyaizawa 30 May, 2016 Lead dog Possibly not the best warm up route... eventually worked out the crux moves then needed some rests later for sore calves!!

jezb1 22 Apr, 2016 Lead O/S Jumped on it not expecting great things as I hadn't felt super good repeating gnat and massambula but it went well! 6a feels about right in my opinion

Franco Cookson OLD 25 May, 2008 Lead felt more like 6b than 5c. Probably 6a.;-) Lowered off the last bolt as I had no quickdraws left and had been informed it was easy after the last bolt. I should also inform you i held a quickdraw whilst clipping it no advantage really but Caused a huge debate.
