βeta: Easy for E3, but seems solid at 6a. The gear in the break is bombproof assuming you place the right stuff, specialist pro is hardly essential. But the move feels quite precarious and unlikely until you actually do it.

βeta: I used a 3/4 wire in the left hand side of the break and an RP in the left slot. I felt that both where bomber and held a fall from the crux well. Good route and a probably a good one to break into the grade.

βeta: How hard this is depends on how much you trust the RPs in horizontal breaks, not totally inspiring but there are lots of them. Certainly didn't feel the soft touch the Rockfax graded list suggests. The top arete is disappointingly easy and disappointingly close to the easy crack.

climberchristy 16 Jun Lead rpt Had to wait ages for crux to dry. Even abbed it earlier and stuffed a towel in the break to soak up the run off down over the crucial pocket. When it finally dried I set off in sunshine. By the time I'd arranged gear for crux it was mizzling and downpour looked imminent so cracked on. Then when at top break the rain really started so I had to do the top arete in the wet. Spicy! Happy to have rediscovered my leading confidence and to be back at this grade after my accident.

Jemima Churchhouse 19 May, 2018 Lead dnf Umm and ahh'd about getting on this all day - tried it right at the end! Took a few falls onto my smallest cam. Definitely one to come back to and work out the beta on top rope. Felt very close. ~my gear and beta described below, don't read on if you want the onsight!~ The break before the crux moves takes the smallest grey cam, and a brass offset to the left of that (size 2/3/4, can't remember). Break one lower takes the purple cam (a bit shit) but moves to the next break aren't that hard so might be worth not bothering in case the purple cam goes better into the next crux break? Beta for crux is probably smear with right, right hand up to pocket, smear with left, right foot up to ledge, then bring left hand to ridiculously tiny pebble. Then stand up :p

Owen W-G 29 Oct, 2011 Lead β First E4, and first success on anything harder than E2 in 2 and half years. Semi beta flashed, since I'd seen the pics, knew to bring tiny cams and that sideways RPs were involved, and had also read a right hand/left hand debate about the pocket (from which I took a hybrid solution). Took an hour to protect and suss out the crux, laced with 5 runners so felt happy to commit, and only about E1-ish once you get the second break, thus maybe E3 6a overall but I'll claim the glory of breaking a new trad grade, probably for the final time, one day after 35th b'day.
