A fine route that is a bit too tricky for a first E1. Climb the line of steep weakness above the cave, with interesting moves stepping right around the arete before the first bulge, and then trending left to a fine finish left around the next arete at the next bulge. Good value.

Didn't know about holds on the arête. A stiff pull on a two finger pocket to get through the steep bit felt rather involved for e1.

:( What are all these holds around the corner? Tried to use something on the arete but it failed. When seconding It felt OK to go up from a finger lock into a side-pull on the left and then straight up. Top slab felt sketchy.

Completely forgot about the holds around to the right so this turned out to be a bit more of a warm up than I'd bargained for. Otherwise, steady stuff and an enjoyable finish.

This gave me a bit of a shock: it looks so easy, but felt very awkward. I'd say hard E1, hard 5b. Very good route, especially the "worrying" upper groove. Great lead by Matt, given almost no rock climbing last year... he may be slightly rusty at the climbing, but his gear detecting and placing skills have in no way withered! Much proddlerage necessary.
