13m.

Rockfax Description
18m. A butch outing that is 'only E2' for those who have done it a few times. From the sloping ledge in the corner, pull through the initial bulges (hard for the short) and hand traverse left to the point where strenuous moves up the inverted Y gain the jamming crack; sprint up this to the pedestal. Finish up the short crack above, or more fittingly out right in a glorious position. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
"A butch outing where the guidebook writers need to learn that they're grading for the onsight and comments like "only E2 if you've done it a few times" are irrelevant nonsense." 11-08-14

willwycherley 30 Aug 2nd dog First half of the route to the crux was ok. Took several attempts to work out the moves from the inverted Y to the handjam. Ended up using the fistjam on the left of the Y but mashed my hands (will tape up next time). Would be amazing to get this as a clean lead but it's a long way off. Loved the route though, what a memorable crux section.

Lower section no problem, but the jamming techniques required to make it through the crack were far beyond my meagre and newly-acquired abilities. Learned how to aid on cams. A lot of fun.

Dave Warburton 24 Jun, 2012 Lead dog The 'jug' that you pull up to the jam with felt greasy/warm/polished (insert excuse here). Reckon doing this last meant the wall got warm in the sun. Quick rest on gear, chalk and brush of jug and the move went ok. Didn't actually think this was that good, compared to the other two (sour grapes?). Oh well!

Finally made the move on my 3rd go but fell getting my other hand into the crack through bad footwork. Every bit as good as I expected though, will be back ASAP to finish it off.

MeMeMe 6 Jun, 2011 2nd Just can't do the crux by jamming. So instead, left hand pulling on the top of the left fork, right foot high right, left foot on not great foot hold between the cracks then right hand up to below the jam, twist around into a layback, do something with your feet then left hand up into a secure jam.

Crofty 30 Jul, 2010 2nd dog Two hangs, first one at the jugs below the vertical crack, then one just above. Found the crack section easy, as I could jam it, Pete reckoned thats the crux and he laybacks it, I think the crux is leaving the big holds above the roof. Horses for courses I reckon. Won't vote, as I don't know.

Reaver2k 12 Aug, 2009 2nd dog Got told to do this when Lisa couldn't make the move out over the roof, wasn't sure if I could either having witnessed Mikes immense span between the good holds leaving me to use poor ones. Up the corner with ease, a really deep mono lets you switch hands. Turn out right, reach up left as far along the roof flake as you can, and then shuffle it along. Eventually got a decent hold, toe hooked and matched it with my right hand. Cut loose and got my feet back on quickly. Swung along a bit more then heel up into the flake. Reached up up the cracks a bit more but had to rest as was really pumped, about the same stage mike got to. Went a bit further up, tried reaching straight up to the jams in the crack far above - too far. Then got some beta from Mike to get a (excruciating) cammed fist jam in the hold just down left of the jamming crack. Then reach up with that, which allowed me to reach a good jam in the crack, I proceeded to plug up as quickly as I could before I ran out of strength, up into the niche. Then the 5 star finish - brilliant. If I had a lot more stamina I could lead this I think.
