Rockfax Description
A good left-hand finish to Auricle. Span left along the lip, from where the ordinary exits rightwards, to reach the jugs and a spectacular finale out in space. © Rockfax

foobar123 19 May, 2018 Lead O/S After Auricle, you've kinda got to do this don't you? From the photos on UKC, I think I traversed a break too low so found it very dusty, slopey, and rather insecure! Kept on going until "the best hold in the world" right around the corner, but only just had enough left in the tank to stick even that. Absolute heart-in-mouth moment!

shed_hed 1 Dec, 2013 Lead O/S Nice litle route. Looking at the pictures on here I could have got more gear in higher up to protect the moves through the top roof. Didn't feel like I needed it though, otherwise I'd have looked a bit harder! Had one look at it first to suss it out, rested, then went for it and was fine.

deacondeacon 8 Aug, 2013 Lead Started up neb buttress direct, then up the crux of auricle then on to this. Climbed clean but not onsight, I've done all the other stuff on the buttress and seconded the E3 before.
