Graeme Hammond 16 Aug, 2018 Lead rpt The E3 Line must either be a bullshit eliminate up wall to the left of the arête eliminating both the arête and avoiding the HS to the left as per the BMC guide (which has no topo) though it mentions going into Himmelswillen so still confusing (hence the dagger symbol in the guide?) or seriously over graded/non existent. Climbed as per the latest Rockfax guide "The roof and blunt arête" which is good climbing over the overhang on the arête but is around E1 5b but actually quite good.

Graeme Hammond 16 Dec, 2017 2nd O/S Should have led but was getting very dark and needed to be home for dinner. Is more like E1 b, miles from being E3 6a!! just one extremely well protected move over the roof, worth doing on lead next time
