Another great route and low in the grade which is always nice. Climb a small corner to a narrow stepped-overhang. Layback onto the front face to a poor rest, then follow the thin technical crack, using the left arete as required.

A great little route. The crux definitely feels 6a to me, and I think my small fingers will have helped. The gear is very good (wires) and reasonably easy to place.

Do you mean 6a sport? Standard 5b.

I agree Al, one of my first E routes ebcause it was regarded as low in the grade at E1 5c.

Standard 5b!? And I suppose the Lamia is an easy E2 as well. Solid 5c, I thought only E1 though as you can lace the crux.

E2? Another retro e-point hooray! But its not though E1 5c
