30m. A mini-expedition, devious with some excellent climbing.<br/>1) 5b, 12m. Climb to the block overhang and pull over to the base of a short ramp. Exit rightwards from the top of this to join Black and Tans which is followed to its stance.<br/>2) 5b, 18m. Climb out left then up the short rib to a possible small stance (4b to here). Pull onto the right edge of the wall above and traverse left (gripping - tiny wires) to the exposed rounded rib.

Not climbed this, but acording to other guides (which split it into 3 pitches) the top bit is 5b.

As I recall, the top bit is 5b - and scary with it. Steadiness required.

Definite typo no doubt arisng from the 3 pitch description where the middle pitch is 4b and top pitch is 5b. There is a nervy move to reach and use the hand rail at the top of the first pitch with only rp type protection. Top pitch a bit contrived but still good.

Good route. Best done in three mini-pitches. Rockfax description does omit to say that 3rd pitch is a 12m 5b. Both 1st & 3rd pitches are bold - the former with a hard final move, protected only by a small RP; the latter on pockets and rounded bulges.

I haven't done many E2's so I can't comment if this was a hard one or not (see voting), but it's an awsome route either way; well worth a try if your climbing around the grade.
