Black Choir E5 6b, The sentinel E2 5b

After a week of training the weather was looking nice so I headed out initially to Burbage north with Jess and a few friends.
For a while I have been wanting to have a play on ‘The Sentinel’ E2 5b
In my opinion its one of the most striking lines of the crag. A really obvious overhanging prow.

Well today I decided to have a go and successfully managed to on-sight it.
I had been saving this for the on-sight and was so glad I did as the experience was awesome.
Here is a picture of me on the onsight:

After this I headed to Higgar tor with my climbing partner Joe Heeley where we did a quick tick of ‘Black choir’ an E5 6b that I had liked the look of.
We had no trouble unlocking the sequence and both topped out within an hour of turning up.
Here we are on practice:

We are both dubious as to the E5 grade but where happy with the tick either way, it made for a good evening out.
Here is the video of our ascents:
