Really cool feature

Puntered first move by thinking the big foothold would be too far away and used a poorer closer one. Brilliant climbing up an amazing feature. Should be on every highballer's list.

Treated it as trad, so no mats. Got to the top notch on the fin but sweated off both side of the arete and came off.

between E2 and E3 5c. didn't think I was going to fall off but mildly scary

Pretty sure the E4 is a typeo gets E3 in the guide which is still pretty generous.

pulled Cal's rope and led it, so had the cams in (not that they're hard to place). It was great moves near the top, but would not have argued if I was told it was E2. . .

Definitely not E4! I would say top end E2 5c. Really good moves though, would thoroughly recommend it.

Don't think the gear is high enough if you mess up the last reach, but you are only a few metres up.

although I'm happy to have got this, I really should have grown a pair and led this onsight. Will have to lead it next time.

Awesome moves - I thought leading was a better option as the gear seemed good and I don't trust Bamford landings.
