A great old-school E5; sloping holds, bags of exposure, a long run out, awkward-to-clip old gear, but ultimately safe (just tell anyone below to look out.) From the top of Ceramic, pull over the bulge and traverse right with difficulty past a peg until, at last, decent holds and easier climbing arrive. Absolutely superb.

Awesome slopy, bold climbing. A bit dirty at the moment but perfectly climbable. take some tat to rig an anchor at the top; i couldn't find anything fixed already. The peg is in a pretty awful state.

If I remember correctly, the crux is before the peg and reasonable climbing after. However, if the peg is poor, is the route worth E6 now?
