Rockfax Description
A circuitous wander up the right side of the big slab; top entertainment! Start a little right of the lower triangular recess. Climb the left-trending crack, then break out slightly right, to gain and pass a horizontal break. Keep moving up and right, until it's possible to climb direct to the overlap above. Complete your foray by climbing diagonally leftwards all the way to a junction with the previous routes. © Rockfax

I moved up after the rightward foot traverse and then up the 'better' crack until it disappeared along with the gear, I might have pressed on if it wasn't for the fact that I'd already used my size 2 and 3 RP's + offsets. To top off a rather terrifying experience it was mid 20's and I was sweating off the smaller crimps. Far more than I was expecting at the grade but we'll worth a go.

This had been on my to do list for years but there were points on it when I seriously wished I wasn't there. Mentally demanding and somewhat stressful, to say the least.

My first ever E2. Sustained from the moment you step off the ground until the moment you pull over the overlap. Small gear comes in handy.

hard, tiny feet, didn't believe some moves would work. Amazing.

went slightly off route here but still did the crux - which felt at least 5c on its own, let alone the slightly dodge gear. E3 5c for sure!!

Got scared on lead from lack of protection and need for precise and considered footwork (lacking) and downclimbed to let Tim lead through

Sustained on small Quartz crimps. Will be interested to see if this grows into an E3 one day...
