2 out of 5 stars meh

An ok route, nothing special, a single set of cams up to #3 and small selection of nuts, on the 5th pitch theres a bolt higher u that lets you do the corner direct at easy 10a R which is a fun change.

3 out of 5 stars Geriatric

Solid day out with Jackie...had to do this one, supposedly a classic...not 5 stars worth, but interesting enough I suppose. That traverse on pitch 6 is quite funky to say the least, particularly to be involved in the first line up this end of EEOR. The one move into the groove is quite sensational. Folks have bailed vs making this move. Otherwise, the climb can be a little tame. The 50m raps were nice. Cheers.
