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.

Great route, annoyingly dropped it twice on the move in the grove. Pleased to get it in a session.

Great climbing crimping between undercuts. Backed up and extended the belay with new rope to ease stripping. 10/7/16

Steady up to the big undercut. Didn't quite work out the crimpy crux. Jumped from the peg rather than top out.

2nd redpoint today, felt pretty solid, managed a bit of a rest on the undercuts too, awesome route, top end for 7c I think

BenNorman 06/Aug/13 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?

Cailean Harker 06/Aug/13 Lead RP

Have climbed the bottom before, so not flash but did the independent bit of Circus first go in the rain. Quality move into the groove.

Brilliant! Keeps you working all the way up to the top groove! Had a play on it a couple of months ago, felt ok, tried it today, felt hard, proper 7c! Crux in the groove is a proper snatch, so good!

Total classic, and the trad finish (altough very easy) just keeps it spicy until the end

Ace climbing up steep ground. Fairly steady 7c. Needs a bolt above the roof and a belay
