Good climbing with a sting in the tail, and spaced but good protection, all the pegs can be backed up. Climb direct up an undulating groove above the belay ledge to a wide break. Traverse left along this past a small niche (block now missing) to beneath the higher peg, switch on your muscles and make some steep, exciting pulls up the wall on mostly good holds to gain the rib and abseil tree.

excellent route, all there, great gear and great moves can't believe it eluded me for this long, shame about the rest before the headwall, missed a key foothold and got pumped

Very awkward rest before the headwall and then a strenuous section until you get to the belay, all in all a pretty good route.

Steady up to the break. The traverse was really dusty, and so trickier than expected. Couple of cool fingery moves above.

As ever, got quite pumped through hanging round too long but soldiered on and got it in the end. Headwall surprisingly pumpy!

Low in the grade but an absolutely brilliant climb with good protection the whole way. End of the traverse is technical though! Was hesitating about getting on this from the bottom, feeling a bit knackered. But so glad I bothered!

Another E2 I shouldn't have fell off but it's a really good route and the gear seemed good. Good effort from Rob, he made it look easy.

Enjoyed leading the easy second pitch after Rob had done battle with the first, the first felt harder than I remembered it being on lead even though I was only seconding.

Didn't go too well for me, sun came out just as I stated climbing and I was wearing a fleece so got very hot very quickly, the traverse which felt like the crux for me was really greasy and I got flash pump. Luckily for me though the actual crux wasn't as bad as I expected.

Got a bit freaked out after falling when a big block detached (not the crucial triangular one).
