5 pitches. Supercedes Positron with a more satisfying line. Arguably the best E5 on the Main Cliff.

HOT! I got the Positron headwall pitch this time. First two pitches only. Abbed off Dinosaur ledge to retrieve John's gear from the day before, below.

I led P1, Jack led P3 then we finished up Dinosaur P3. Scorchio!

Climbed 3 times so far, most recently in July 2016. Fabulous route. Usually climb 1st pitch crux high, but jammed wire remnants is still a problem (blocks only placement). Found you can traverse lower, which is better and more satisfying.

Amazing! led pitch 2 (positron head wall) and pitch 4 which ended up being the top of citadel into cordon bleu as Michaela belayed in the wrong place and then it started raining so buzzed it to the top ASAP. Really good route p1 has some really tough sections and obviously p2 is amazing. P3 covers some great ground. Done in amazing day hit leaving Sheffield at 9am and getting back for a pint at the Union at 10:30 having stopped for fish and chips on the way home. Not even the lottery can buy you that!

Full day adventure! Led 1, 3, 4. First 3 pitches all hard and on good rock. P4 looked horribly loose and a bit dangerous so finished up Tet Offensive.

Tried to move left too soon at end of Positron pitch, got pumped and rested on gear. Whole route was an epic adventure!

No peg at belay on pitch 2. Move down another metre and use spikes.

Led P1 & P3. 3 solid pitches. Pitch 1 is a bit airy on the crux, I found this pitch the hardest. Pitch 3 is steep and pumpy, also unless you have climbed citadel, mammoth etc before, it is difficult to know where to go. (especially without a guide!)Belay on sloping ledge at some obvious threads in a cavelet. Jake found P3 the hardest. Epic and amazing.

I'd wanted to do Positron (think I'd seen a brilliant picture of Andy Pollit on the diagonal crack) but Crispin said this would be better combination; he was right of course. I remember being mighty relieved to finish to reach the groove in Dinosaur. I think we finished up Dinosaur too.
