16m. A fine test of both nerve and technique. From the second peg on Climb High move upwards on small holds to a lonely and difficult to clip bolt. Pass the bolt by thin cranking before moving leftwards to better holds and the lower-off.

If it is E5 then it's the only one I've climbed in the last 6 years. Felt boldish but don't remember thinking it was particularly desperate at E4.

I agree with Ian for exactly the same reasons (only 10 years in my case!)
Tyler - 15/Mar/05

Yep...agree too. E4 6a. seem to remember the bolt being in a daft place too..the hard climbing is below you.

Definately only E4 but a bit scary

If it's E5 then I did it before I ever did any E4s! And much as I like that idea I don't think it's true and I agree with those above - I'm sure it's only E4...

How can it be E5 with the bolt by the rock-over? E3/4

I am an imbecile. The comment was meant for meant Climb High.

There's now a bolt next to the 2nd peg on Climb High (added Autumn 07?), so TT now feels less fluttery and more like 6cish. Easy for the tall.
