Georgina Brooke 1 Jun Lead got pretty confused by the routes as described in the CC guide (esp as no topo), attempted to do HVS to the right of renaissance but ended up on this (which gets e1 in CC book). Enjoyed it, we still had an ab line down from renaissance and added a bit of gear on this after the crux :) and also used this on the death muddy dropout which id done in renaissance

Country_Boy 9 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S Really enjoyed this. Yes, the rib is quite bold, but the careful climbing is very absorbing and satisfying. I placed a cam out right, possibly on the route next door, then moved back left for the bold section of rib. Had to go quite a way before finding a half decent nut placement.

Wilbur 21 Mar, 2010 Lead dog First lead fall - went about 20 feet when a foothold broke on the top-out. Was avoiding more obvious footholds as a lot of it was wet (had done the adjacent E1 which shares this finish previously and remembered it being tricky when dry and in good nick!). Good to take the fall and happy that i'd put the 'just in case' piece in! Annoyed about not getting the tick but these things happen. As for the route? Quite nice if a bit of a non-line and very bold in the top third - about 20 ft run-out...
