Pretty good, good much easier than expected pull through the roof (excelent gear) with a good heal hook. Closer to 5b than 6a as per one of our guides, wide crack quite tame too, overall felt softer end of E1.

A bit green but really awesome, probably should have learnt how to jam first though.

Cool route, a hard well protected move before some fun crack action

20/31. Better than it looks. Another lesser-travelled gem.

20 on Staffordshire nose. Stiff move to start.

annoying as i fell of after the crux because of my hand jam slipping out because of slime in the crack, super annoying.

Did the start no probs but couldn't fight my way up the initial crack. Had to pull on the rope. Fantastic fist crack to finish.

The definition of gritstone crappiness. But strangely enjoyable in a hedonistic type way. Like having a bad tooth taken out.

First E1, having only one large cam made it a fair bit more run out...
