good fun watching Shane clock some air miles

Spent ages going up and down trying to figure out the crux. Greasy in the crack but I eventually got a sketchy finger lock and managed to pull through, got a bomber cam in near the flake and decided to go for the top on the "improving holds". It's pretty steep and the holds weren't as good as I expected, and some were wet, all this resulted in me taking an absolute belter of a fall from the top of the route! Superb. I'd give it soft E3, definitely harder than Cran Tara

Hot, sweaty and fucked at end of the day, took a lob right from the top and too knackered to finish! Next time

Felt hard for E2 and 5b at the end of the day. Suggestions of E1 are nonsense.

Good rest then crux moves on fingerlocks followed by jug pulling to finish.

repeated falls from top move, but very happy to be able to climb at all

Fun, but prompted some fairly sceptical discussion about the grade.

did fall on that last move...but not E3! neva!

andymoin 18/May/08 Lead O/S

Very nice climbing that only really starts after the good rest at half height, steep and pumpy. Was in the zone, it felt soft, but awesome! First e3!
