Not bad, but fair to say not a good one for an aspirational E1 leader!

Got slightly lost at the start of this. Then a passerby sent me back in the right direction. I thought this deserved e2 5a.

Bold but didn't feel I was ever going to come off (apart from the gusts of wind) - tempted to do the RofY finish as it looked much more pleasant.

I was expecting the route to be better, mostly pretty easy moves with one tricky section and obviously no gear. Waste of time! - Edit - might have gone the wrong way? :s

Pete_Frost 31/Jul/15 Lead O/S

Pure pleasure. Gear appears after half height - brass offsets, medium wires, a tied-off iron bar, and two tricams in shot holes.

with Chris Brooks
Misha 21/Jun/15 Lead O/S

Don't fall off! First half to the broken area is a solo. There's some gear on the second half though, including a folded over number 6 nut in a shot hole (number 7 would work as well) which took a while to extract so might have held! Not that hard - a lot of 4c with a bit of 5a - but mildly exciting.

We picked this as an escape rather than ascending the path. Probably not the wisest choice but it was good fun none the less.

Sebastien Gastaud 28/Sep/11 Lead O/S

First protection was 7 metres from the ground (small sling around a small flake), and the next piece was a dodgy nut (Yellow DMM offset) at 18 metres. I then placed at last a medium cam 25m from the ground, before starting the Richard of York finish. The minimal choice of protection makes it harder than E1, but the technical grade is definitely a 5a in my opinion.

Rich Guest 30/Apr/11 Lead O/S

Finished up the Richard of York way. Obviously bold but very steady moves between large ledges. Felt hard 5a to me in places really, but I think it's deceptive because of how much pressure there is. Seconds shouldn't try to grade it!
