Bold at the top. I found this less sustained than the other e1s here but it does have a hard section near the top above the gear (5c?).

Abseiled in and climbed from sea level. Some tricky moves at the top.

Tough for E1, there's plenty of gear on it but most is fiddly to place. Micro cams would have been useful.

West Country Climbs gives this E1 5b. I did think it was a bit stiff for that grade. E2 5c is about right IMO. Much harder than Sacre Coeur too for me. Great conditions as wind direction to north made the top section feel okay.

I award myself 1 official onsight point. No guidebook, just picked the line. Thought it would be about VS. Didn't realise the gear would be so rubbish, due to to odd, flared shapes of the placements. I either climbed this or 'Lord Lucan is Missing' or a mix of the two.
