1) 4, 40m. (The Direct Start) An interesting pitch up the slab and a short crack below the usual start makes the climb one pitch longer. This bit is only 4 but the rest is 5+.
We rather liked the direct start, if only because it meant a bit extra climbing.
Its a nice pitch and it would be a shame if climbers dismissed it as being too easy when compared to the rest of Eagle Ridge.We agreed with the grading of Eagle Ridge, but thought the direct start was harder than the guidebook suggested
