The excellent corner taken on good jams. Stopping to negotiate gear is often people's downfall on this uber-classic.

Redpointed two afternoon session on bottom rope then one quick session just to lead it after work. The route it's self is a finger/hand crack up a corner with pockets on the faces and a great rest just below half way, breaking out to the left onto some good crimps near the top. A fantastic route on really solid sandstone protected by 5 well spaced bomber nuts. A great start to the season. I'd set a goal to climb E2 by the end of the season so i'm well chuffed.

Awesome, thought it would be a pump fest but there are a few good jams to be had! still pretty hard though

An excellent climb, it's really not over til it's over! I was considering leaving my torque nuts on the ground in favour of just cams, but very glad I didn't. It eats hexes all the way up and the cams I did place seemed quite 'skatey' on the sandy rock.
