The bulging left arete of the buttress is short-lived but manages to be a pumpy little number despite this. © Rockfax

βeta: No way E3, soled this (E3 isn't my normal soling grade!) then soloed Randy's wall (the VS to the right) straight after, only felt about one grade in diference.

Calum Wadsworth 25 Mar, 2018 Lead O/S Stayed close to the arete but didn't really use it as holds to the side are much better. sort of between the E2 and HVS's I suppose and also probably between them in grade, E1 5b maybe.

PeteWilson 1 Jun, 2017 Lead O/S Felt fairly easy/steady. Not sure where the E2 5c comes from! Some kinda poor handholds but big feet all the way. No gear at the top

martroberts 25 Jul, 2012 Lead O/S Great route! Felt fine this time. Tried it last week but nearly got blown off the crux so down climbed. I'm claiming an onsight anyway! Felt like easy 5c to me and I'm sure it's not E3. Easier than Master Blaster and probably less committing

Si dH 25 Jul, 2009 Lead dnf Got very pumped with feet up above the square roof, had to slap for the top of the hard bit and didnt hold the sloper. Feet bottomed out about 2-3 feet from the ground - quite a big fall. Need to come back and od it when fresh, rather than as the 11th rotue of the day :oS E2 5c seems right to me although I havent finished it yet. It's not bold enough to be E3 - I know coz if it was I'd be in pain.
