One of the 'must-do' routes of the quarry. Follows the striking crack, on less than natural holds, to half height before continuing on decent (for the grade) holds and a worrying top-out. Pumpy!

Applebly did a very smooth lead before me, I went for the flash knowing all the beta and gear (for the crux lower section anyway) and fell countless times before finally getting past it ground up. So not the best of style but still, chuffed for my 1st E4! Still feel like I'm a long way off onsighting something like this but at least this is progress. Climbing on the upper section after the crux start feels about E2ish and is very enjoyable.

Sadie dispatched this in a very impressive on sight manner. I then led it on her pre placed gear, having top roped it last week. Felt good to get an e4 so early in the season even if the style wasn't the best.

Went down on the first lead attempt. Felt smooth through the crux after working out some secure but painful beta.

first e4 stoaked!, although made a hash of placing cams low down in the crack and came off, cruised it after i manned up and stopped clogging it with gear

Clean on second go after changing the sequence at the bottom crack. Perhaps I should try to lead next time.

Fell just above the crux when I found a nice rail covered in grit and sand. Not enough left in the tank to cope with that too!

Felt pretty easy today - couple of cranks on perfect finger locks and a dirty top out but rest is fine. Loads of bomber gear all the way tip at bottom is limit yourself to a couple of pieces of gear!

One silly rest that I didn't need, excellent climb, tricky finger lock section then sustained easier top half with one final tricky move near the top. Thought provoking top out but fine if you trend left....
