All dry at the bottom, bouldery start and much easier finishing groove, awesome!

Lovely day out with Brad, Sabby and Tom. Enjoyed ticking most of the Orme E3's which all massively exceeded expectations. Enjoying progressing through the grades again now that the finger is getting better.

F6bish. All the start was soaking wet and ended up hanging on the bolt whilst contemplating carrying on. Finished it off, then led it cleanly in the rain.

Duncan Campbell 20/Feb/12 Lead G/U

Slipped off the bottom, lowered then flashed it to the chains on Mason's gear. Pretty gopping at the cruxy bottom, then fairly sustained to the top. First hard trad of the year.

no point in clipping second bolt as you can get a bomber .5 cam.

pumpy start, then nice, steady moves with great kit all the way to the top.

with nic
mynyddresident 12/Sep/11 Lead

Nice climbing, trickiest through the bulge. Good kit, reckon clipping the 2nd bolt on the neighbouring route would dilute the trad feel.

really good climbing, similar quality and difficulty to Plumbline. quite pumpy, top felt trickier than it looks. 2nd bolt on Mr Chips shouldnt be used at the grade.

How many of the bolts are in? Resisted clipping the second on 'Mr Chips' and although there is good gear, it seemed a bit silly not to though? Great sustained climbing, a fine route, warmed the cockles on a very cold day!
