A big pitch which is seldom attempted. An inspection is probably advisable, since the gear is marginal, and the peg poor. Connect a series of cracks to an impasse at mid-height. Tricky moves lead past this, then up to the break. Follow easy corners to a ledge below a blank wall. Either power up this (direct rather than on the right)... or cop-out and scuttle up the corner on the left.

Hard to grade as depends on how clean! I thought it was harder than most of all the Stoney E5! Really gnarly move right at the top! Some suspect rock as well!

Deserves pre-inspecting. There is loose rock in places and some of the wire placements are marginal. The peg is past its sell by date, but can be backed up by a bomber wire above. The hard move on the top wall isn't so bad if you climb it direct rather than moving right.
