Rockfax Description
A pumpy Wilton classic, powerful and devious, though with good gear throughout. Rope work can be a little problematical. From Blackout climb strenuously to the seagull-shaped roof then compose yourself before launching right along this to a bridged rest at its far end. Just when you thought it was all over you find that the final short crack takes no prisoners. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An intense route with brutal climbing along the slanting roof (easier for dwarfs with thin fingers) to a jamming (not bridging) rest, then more precarious and powerful moves to a nice top-out. Hard and safe.

Got very pumped on the traverse due to long legs and fat fingers - managed to recover enough to do the crux though.

My 1st E4. The Undercuts are easy if your short and indoor strong. Last set of movers off the jag are quite hard. not sure if it was 6a for me.

1st attempt at onsighting E4. Got across the traverse fine, and part-way up the final crack/groove, but got stopped where the crack opens out. Desperate moves - couldn't do it!
