A stiff little number. Climb the rounded rib to the bulges, step out right and gain the upper slab with difficulty. Finish direct to the terrace and a tussle with the grass cornice.


we put a top rope on this and got up it first go. i usually can only climb to about e1 and felt i could lead this. is it under graded? gear is not great but should be safe enough at the crux. someone let me know

How tight was your rope? Any protection has to be arranged in the friable break and the moves are not obvious above unless chalked. Believe the grade!

no tension on the rope, i am quite tall and could reach a one finger pocket to help me over the buldge which felt like the crux. thought could maybe get couple of cams in the break there, admittably run out after that but not too hard(except grass top out). first time on sandstone though so not sure of the strength. will lead next time, thanks for the reply

Sounds like you were on Morgue Slab; Necrophiliac is slightly to the right. The lines were completely arsed up in the first Western Grit.

Yeah if you used a mono you were on morgue slab, E2 5b. The moves on necrophiliac are much harder, but get slightly easier as you get higher.
