Worth e1 for first bit,once around the bulge it's about (H)VS. Top quality route on a stunning line.

USBRIT writes: On the first ascent Ross led it in Gimmer hiking boots as the Woolworth two shillings and six pence gym shoes were not great on the small sharp holds.Apart from pulling out clumps of heather on abseil the climb was led on sight.The only protection was one piton just above the crux.The crack below the crux was too big for the available pitons of that time.

Rushed it and didn't read it well resulting in me popping off the bulge - disappointing, not too hard really. What a great line though!

Fell one move from the top when my foot slipped off a small hold covered in pond slime. Caught by first piece of gear (bad friend 2 loaded on 2 lobes) Abbed down to get gear. So nearly first e1, but first trad fall instead :/
