One of the most popular and clean E4s at Fairhead. Technical wall climbing and an awkward crack crux on the first pitch. An intimidating but thankfully straightforward roof and awkward crack crux on the second pitch. Low in the grade.

davkeo 22 Jun AltLd O/S Superb. Lead pitch 1 & got right leg calf cramp at the crux groove. Beautiful climbing & an impressive/imposing roof or 2 on the second pitch. Hanging belay was a bit uncomfortable on small wires.

shaunhumphreys 3 Jun AltLd O/S Atmospheric, had to stand still occasionally in between rain showers for it to dry! Led P2 which felt like climbing lots of booming blocks. Pulled a massive jug off above Ben at the start of p2 and somehow didn’t fall and managed to keep hold of it and launch it off to the side, spicy!

TomRiddelsdell 8 Aug, 2017 AltLd O/S Lead p2. Was feeling the exposure after the crimpy technical moves at the end of p1. Wanted to cry on p2 when I reached over the roof from the large undercut on the right and couldn't find the jug described in the guide book. Managed to find it using the small flake undercut on the left instead...thank god. Pulling over was quite a buzz! The rest of the pitch was fine although I was still pretty gripped. Definitely more of a psychological battle than a physical one.

islandlynx 8 Aug, 2017 AltLd G/U Led P1. Fell on the first attempt on the last hard sequence, reached for a hold which turned out to be non-existent. Pulled on then failed again. Got it second day, did have a cheeky look as our ab went straight down the line. Not as many hard moves as track of the cat. Surprised that I solved the crux on a face climb by udging. Belayed after P1 from small foot ledge 5m left of the pillar. Tom did a great job on pitch 2 especially since description of where to go through the roof is a little confusing, the short corner it refers to is the one on the left with the jammed block/broken crack.
