was hard and quite skechy at times good gear but only a few places to put them unless in small nuts range. had to climb above most gear placed and certain chance of decking before you get to the big shelf once on there pile the gear in again :)

This is def E1, the gear is good lower down but for the crux its a crappy nut behind a hollow sounding horn. On my lead attempt i fluffed the crux and the gear behind the horn ripped,thanks to good belaying by john my bum only gently touched the floor after falling 30ft!
