reubenhf 13 Aug Lead O/S Thoroughly enjoyed this! Interesting moves and well protected. Personally very happy with my trad game here - speed and quality of gear placements noticeably improved after mega faffing on Bullroarer and some other recent E1s.

Euan Todd 18 May, 2018 Lead G/U One fall just above the thread, managed to weld in my red offset :'(. Crag swag if anyone gets it out! Lowered off, pulled the ropes and a quick rest. Taps aff for power, and got it next go. Pumpy, and tricky to read on the onsight! Quality climbing though, epitomises limestone trad. E2 5c seems bang on.
