My first succecssful E1 lead! I thought the finger crack at the start was too narrow for my fingers, then got really good pumped on the slopers at the top: either the "rest" is rubbish or I'm rubbish at finding rests. Very pleased with this one, especially after climbing nothing but pumpy laybacks all day

Really good, the finger crack has incredible locks if you have thin fingers.

Felt steady for a Curbar E1. Shame the finger crack isn't twice as long.

Matt put some important gear in at the bottom. Scared myself at the top because the line is not obvious. Great route

seconded Ben on this last year. Climbed today in damp conditions waiting for rock to dry so felt quite tough. Good little route - nicely varied.

Sgrit. Nearly fluffed the start.

Not what I was expecting, the intimidating crack is actually straightforward and rewards enthusiasm but the final streeeeetch is much bigger than it looks. A really good little route.

good finger locks, and more for feet than first appearances suggest make a fine but but soft (at Curbar!) E1, probably worth a 2nd star!
