Censor*** E3 5c
[Censor E3 5c, 3 kb]16m. Intimidating though with memorable climbing. From blocks, enter the leaning groove (poor wires) then climb to the roof. Swing right and commit to the bulge, making strenuous then delicate moves to stand on the nose. Easier climbing remains and finishing up the centre of the face is the best finish. © ROCKFAX

Bark is much worse than it's bite! Holds are all there and quite positive - soft for 5c. One to lead next time.

I'd be very wary of Franco's comments (naughty)... There's lots of worthwhile gear, particularly and crucially before the main difficulties, but also post crux. (beta on request ;) Very nice middle section.. Committing as hell, but felt brill!
