8m. The left edge of the slab has a bold high step to reach a good break and gear. Pass the bulge above by a long reach then finish direct, or stride out right - slightly easier.
Definatley feels exposed on the crux, a fall would see you tumbling down the hillside. The top is fine.
Nice moves, gear is bomber.
The 1989 Stanage guide shows the line finsishing up the arete (which is better), not out right.
Lovely, Kayakky in grade and height arguments, mats won't help you here though. I placed a blind cam and, fortunately as it turned out, didn't need it.
Felt darn hard for E1. Did it as a warm up, but on the plus side, nothing seemed particularly scary later on that day.
Harder than Daydreamer, due to the landing (or lack thereof). At E1 5c (as in other guides, anyone who thinks this is 5b is plainly wrong) it would be consistent with routes like Ice Boat and Phlegethoa which have a boulder problem start above an appalling, ankle snapping landing. All massive sandbags.
