10m.

Rockfax Description
10m. Sprint up the flake then swing left and make a swift mantel before climbing a precarious scoop to a desperately rounded exit. A large cams protects the last move. Every move is supposed to be worth three stars and it is said to be E2 for grit technicians. © Rockfax

FA. Andrew Woodward 1977.

βeta: Sorry to be controversial ... but I actually thought that was hard (like actually E4)

βeta: The BMC grade of E3 5c seems more fair. Maybe I'm tall, maybe you're shit?

βeta: Yesss! What a route. Fantastic flakes then a thought-provoking top out. Tried to mantel straight up from the footledge at first, but found it a little less insecure/ scrittley to top out few steps left towards the groove of National Acrobat. Good gear up to the point of the last flake (didn't have a big cam for the top out as per BMC guide suggests)

βeta: Brilliant route. Every move is certainly worth three stars and its also reasonably safe. Bit unsure of the grade especially if you use a camalot five like I did. It didn't feel too hard even as my first onsight "E4".

βeta: Thought it was one of the best routes I have ever done, really loved it. Guess it's worth E3 if you have about a Camelot 5 for the top runnel, then that nasty rock over seems all too easy, But I didn't have one and was pretty excited when rocking on to the top slab. 3***

βeta: Very similar in style to Ascent of man, but easily a full grade easier in every sense!
