Along with its neighbour The Embankment, this offers more open groove climbing than the burly cracks of many Prow routes. Steady climbing leads to a tricky and technical crux section where the groove steepens high up.

kylos8048 25 Aug Lead Probably the softest E3 at Fairhead. Doesn't even compare to the harder E2's. Crux is weird/different but still low end 5c. Still a classic prow route with an unforgettable crux. E2 5c **

Jmpollard 16 Jun, 2018 Lead dnf Last route of the day, started at like 10:30, bad decision. Steady climbing most of the way, didn't know where the crux was so just kept plodding, good gear the whole way but getting more and more pumped. Got right to the top, pumped out my mind, in the dark and with no headtorch and fell off. Gave it everything and couldn't even climb out I was that knackered. Brilliant!

davkeo 31 Jul, 2016 Lead O/S Wow. What a climb. Felt steady up to crux & from there to the top it was full on. Found the sequences hard to read, awkward & thin. Pretty sustained also & id say I was the width of a bees dick from coming off. Chuffed to get it. Gave it all I had & it was just enough. Small margins. First E3 onsight.
