Rockfax Description
The first of the five classic Right Wing E3s. Climb the leftwards-curving arch for 8m until a vague rightward traverse line is reached. Arrange protection then move right to a good pinch. Thin moves lead to a slot above and good wires. Climb direct to the roof then traverse left slightly until it is possible to pull into the scoop above. © Rockfax

Messed up the crux.

Nick Russell 10/Jun/16 Lead O/S

Chalk on the traverse made route finding easier. Enjoyed the crux moves then faffed for ages under the roof. The rock on the topout requures careful handling.

Awesome route. The traverse is quite technical and feels committing. Worth 3 stars in my opinion
