Essentially a direct start to 'Slot Shot' though with some nice, fingery climbing linking together the shattered cracks leading to the large undercut of the parent route.

Ticklists: Central Belt Extremes.

Certainly more natural than Slot Shot. Good finger locks.

Great fun. Definitely deserves a star or two. Thin and technical to the undercut. C3s useful. Suspect low in the grade.

Think this was onsight, but maybe not. Retro flash at very least :p

Fell going up to the undercling, annoyed as once on it route is done...good route and next time should be clean

couldn't do the move into the overlap so I bailed off left onto the E1. still, nice to get the bottom section sorted. I'll be back!

Psyched to get this! Had fallen off this last summer, so abbed down the line to look at the gear, then went for it. Good climbing.

First E3. Nice moves and great gear, never felt that difficult which I wasn't expecting!

Good line. Better than Slot Shot! **

Having done Slot Shot previously. Seems a lot less eliminate.

Led it clean this time - much better performance than my woeful attempt last year. Even though I think I used a worse sequence to gain the undercut this time, the knowledge I'd gained from my previous attempt that the undercut is quite friendly, made it feel less committing. After the undercut it is easy - though I took a long time to protect myself just above it due to incompetent friend choice, and got a little tired. Note to self: you nearly always over-estimate the size of friend for the job!

Piss poor performance. Should have led this clean, but dithered and worried and lost heart. Must try to learn from this rather than blame my hnagover. Matt seconded it clean,no bother.

A nice climb, surely worth one or two stars - best climbed by following thin cracks above ledge to a cruxy move to the undercut and some nice steep pumpy moves after that. Not really an eliminate either....
