Probably the best E1 on sandstone. Follow the underside of the stepped roofs from left to right, a tricky move at the end allows access to a ledge (thread a long sling in a vertical borehole) and an easy finish.

Realized where a key hold was at the crux after making awkward move.

Probably more like HVS 5b, but still a great route

A pleasant VS with a one move E1 crux. Took me ages to commit to the move but was OK in the end. Doesn't say much for S Wales sandstone if this is the best E1!

Really not all that. Dodgy rock at the bottom and the top, with a couple of nice moves tucked in the middle.

Attempted lead, slumped on gear several time on crux, bailed then managed to second it.

Couldn't commit to the crux - have been back and completed since. First E1

Felt more like HVS to me? Maybe the recent alpine chossfests have affected me badly. Good route, though.
