Arrange gear, including clipping the old peg, then down to the deck for a rest. Go up on greasy pockets to the right of the peg, then traverse back higher, tricky on smooth flat holds, to the thread. Easier, excellent climbing above leads up to the very steep top wall, where a big reach off a sharp hold leads to a break, then easier to the top. Amazing pitch!

Another mega lead from the flyonhg scotsman, another all points off dyno at the bottom traverse, great to watch.

Great climbing. moving back left above the peg felt hard. Ended up just jumping to the flake as couldn't reach it.

Brilliant route! Hard traverse left above the peg low down and hard moves above upper thread.

Mark Warnett ?/Aug Lead O/S

Went up to the right of the peg and didn't clip it which is the obvious line. Absolutely cracking route at least as good as Bloody Sunday, steady away E4 and protection fantastic (3 bomber threads in a row at one point!)

Fell off this a couple of months ago in very very greasy conditions (foggy and rainy). Crux for me was the traverse back left above the peg, where I fell last time and left gear. Went clean today. Amazing route, full on climbing all the way to the top, and every move is such fun!

Feeling humbled and tired by seconding Flavio on Bloody sunday, abbed back down to try this line, now the tide had come in and rain had stopped there was a damp mist in the air. After deliberating and changing my mind twice I gave it a shot, climbed past the first crux then greased off whilst trying really hard not to. We had do prussic back out of the leap because even Shape Up was too wet to climb. Fun day, and what a good route to have waiting for me when i come back :)

Ramon Marin 25/May/15 Lead O/S

Really happy with this as it's my first proper E5 onsight coming out of the ice climbing season. No beta, but chalk helped follow the way of course. Felt pretty steady, all gear is bomber. A trad route for sport climbers, maybe 6c+ climbing. I assume the other E5's in leap are a whole different story though...

Messy lead. Heavy rain but fairly sheltered. I got incredibly pumped very quickly by the peg. Climbed direct to the peg then right. Foot slipped and nearly fell on the traverse left. The rest of the route is absolutely awesome, and the juggy finish is thrilling!
