E3 6a

Adjacent Routes
<< Welcome to Hard Times Direct < Joint Effort  |  Captain Reliable > Private Gripped >>

Climb the slender pillar between Captain Reliable and Joint Effort leading to the start of Private Gripped. Finish up this (E6 ) or, more in keeping, move right to join Captain Reliable.

Despite being close to adjacent routes, nice climbing; no more than 5c, but gear v poor and spaced after first 7m, until you join CR, so E3 fair. Makes a really good, consistent climb if you finish up Captain Reliable (for which first 16m are only VS/HVS).
