A hard move to leave the ground (micro wires protect) gains the sloping ledge. From here a strenuous moves up the sharp ArĂȘte leads up to the crux of Ouroborus which is rather contrasting. From here either sensibly escape left along ledges, or continue up the bold wall above an old peg. It is also possible to traverse right from the peg around the arete to finish up a groove.

Slipped off at the top of the initial crack.

Tried last year but couldn't do the layback crux clean (7/7/16), was surprised when I found the bottom section hard today and the layback, once committed, quite straightforward! Pleased to have got this first go today, although the crux of the HVS was still hard!

Still a cracking good route-of-two-halves, hopefully the bolt issue will be resolved. E2 in its current state (not that I clipped the bolt of course..)

Nice to find the climbing straight forward on this - found it very technical when I lead it.

Still think the hardest move is that weird ledge thing on Ouroborus.

Gutted, took a wee slump just before the ledge where it joins Ouroborus. When I did the move in the end, it wasn't too bad. Will definitely go next time!

Great route, fell off from the top of the crack after right hand ledge, messed up my jamming! could have got back on but saving it for at least a ground up!

Wanted this for a while. Right hand finish fantastic - bold but easy.

Was able to do the moves but not in a fashion where I could have placed the gear on the lead.

Fell from the top of the crack when my jam popped. Got straight back on and nailed it....Doh! Nice finish up and to the right, nothing too hard but very run out. Wouldn't have wanted to fall from there!

Wee slip at the start and I *suppose* I *slightly* weighted the gear after I hit the ground...

Self-belay. I used 2 fixed ropes to self belay this due to the angle of the route. :o)

Self-belay, failed attempt. Will try again. :o)

Right hand finish is lovely, and run-out. Well recommended.

Seems hard and thin for grade and needs a good clean.

right hand finish at top quite exciting. Well worth heading left if you want the full experience. Well worth heading left if you have got more than 2 brain cells!
