10m. The leaning crack has a useful pocket and is well named. A technical gem that is not E3 despite what some think!

Ludicrously undergraded.Technically harder than war of The Worlds E5 which I flashed 10 days ago. This is 6a+ if you are short.Therefore the overall rating needs to go up; safety and shortness don't necessarily make for a low grade. If a move stops you then the route is harder than the route that doesn't stop you. OK so it isn't E5 but I would have to say E3. Go ahead and laugh, I love to entertain fools....

E3? Maybe you got your hands wrong...

Ian Jones if you didn't manage to climb this as an E1 5c, maybe you should reevaluate your climbing or your understanding of the grading system.

Does exactly what it says on the tin - short, sharp, safe, and yes especially well named. The moves are rather good throughout too, worth ** I think.

More of a boulder problem really. Not E3 thats for sure.

E1 5b. The name of the thing gives it away - gear is good and easy to place. I liked it a lot!
