Smash up to the roof of Shadow Walker on big undercuts and small crimps, move right and shake out as best you can on a couple of greasy undercut pockets. Clip the peg and pull around a small arete to reach positive holds and udge up into the groove. Crap your pants at the run out above and lower off the rusty peg to return the next day with a trad rack. Sew up said groove only to discover it's barely even a scramble and top out. Lovely jubbly.

BenNorman 6 Aug, 2013 Lead dnf Great route, got to the good undercuts but totally boxed and getting rained on. Really tires so should go alright next time, groove on top is really easy but a pain in the ass to strip. Do enough people really do the E4 to warrant not putting a ab station in?
