After a bit of playing around found the crucial crimp that makes everything much easier! Maybe to go back for the lead one day...

Tried it with rope from the top several times. Finally today I figured out the correct foot positions. Amazing climbing.

Quite dusty, and also very hard

A little sweaty. Was vaguely thinking about going for the solo again but couldnt be bothered.

Started this on top rope but quickly drifted onto easier ground. Will go back to it once I've got a better idea of the line.

Cool route, get the feeling it would seem a lot less scary on a cool, crisp day. Slopery thing just below the top had a thin layer of excitement grease. Had a few goes on the shunt then went for the solo. Had a pad down to protect the bit getting in to the base of the groove. Psyched to get it done in an evening session :)

With toprope practice, but my first route of this grade for a long time, so was just nice to remember what they feel like! With the side runner E5. Really good friction even in the sun!

Headpoint. Not hard, probably not E6 though I lack experience here! Good balancy climbing.

Flashed it on a top rope, then had it on the lead. Used side runner. Great route!

With bomber side runners which i think makes it a very easy E5

Trying to convince myself to solo, but realistically will shunt it some more and then lead it. Will claim E5 head point if I lead it.

Had toproped a while ago, maybe a year. Using the side runner makes this a very good E5. First go via the easy start, which I suspect most people use. I then had a quick go at the hard, bold start with gear clipped, then did the whole thing again with proper start.

Maybe a few more top rope ascents and then a lead.

aww felt harder than last time

clean on top rope after 2 falls there is only 1 hard move at the beginning which is a long reach to a terrible micro crimp I am sure I could lead it if I got it really wired .

Used a different sequence every time which made the solo feel a little sketchy. Not very hard or tenuos climbing but definitely 6a.

It took me ages to do this waiting for all the kids to finish abseiling down it with their muddy boots. One bold move in the groove and all is over. Generous at E6

Think I first decided to use the `side' runner on this day.
