Headpoint ascent. It was practiced on top rope.

How is the climbing on this? What do you think it would be like for the onsite?
JM - 09/Sep/07Report
Dodgy for an onsight i would say. No gear. Crux at the top is very committing and is a bit of a slap. Can be quite sequency. I'd want to be onsighting E6 personally before having a go at this.

It says in the guide the route can be protected with amigos in the pockets? What are they and where would they go in?
JM - 19/Sep/07Report
Dont know anything about Amigos really. Apparently its been tried but its not very good. Tricams maybe? To be honst you need most of the pockets so there may not be much room.
I once abseiled down it with hexes, WC rocks and a Friend 2 and couldnt find a half decent placement anywhere. Nuts arent big enough to cam in there and the hexes jus arent the right size.
Will Hunt - 19/Sep/07Report
I take it all back. A tricam will go in the pocket just above Ewan's right hand. If this held, which I think it would, it would make the crux safe. But it's pretty much the best hold on the route, can you afford to make it poor?

ERgo it's probably E4 6b or E5 6a depending how you lead it ;)
