Made and ill advised and impetuous decision to lead this after climbing at Alien at lunchtime and 3 routes on the Sentinel block in the evening. Ran out of gas and rested before the last move which turned out to be fairly easy in the end. Better than last time mind when I tried to follow Scott and couldn't get off the ground. Brilliant climb though it felt fairly desperate at the time.

Watched Matt take a rest or two (2006). Climbed again 26/09/2011, again with Matt leading. Watched him take a few more rests this time, as he made it his mission to decorate the crack with as much metal and tape as he could carry. I seconded clean again (despite all the gear I had to extricate! 12 pieces in all), but I don't get the impression that this route is a pushover at E2.
