Fifteen years on and it remains about as hard as they come. From runners below mid-height, climb the arete by a series of incredibly tenuous moves. Once committed, you are on your own. The lower arete to an escape left is Yoghurt, E3 6b.

Surely anyone who has tried the route and failed is qualified to comment on it's difficulty?

Looks fine from here...

How can someone possibly look at that and think "I'll climb that one day!"

Oh and Slingshot Direct is now harder.

Never ever ever ever going to be able to go anywhere near this but my question is, is there such a thing as easy E10?
Baron von Odds - 06/May/03

We should compare it with Dr Dolittle and Blind Vision then see!

Ben Moon gave it 8b+ on top rope, Bentley thought it worthwhile wearing a helmet and Gresham took a year's yoga training to get it. Hmm tricky then and with very low gear. But agree with Iggy re: Dr. Dolittle. Though as 1st E10 on grit maybe this is "low in the grade" - yeah right!
