Seconded this with about 10 rests as one of my first limestone routes about 6 years ago. Pleased to come back and lead it. Very easy for E3, no harder than most stoney E2's.

bigdrew - Lead β - 25/Jun/11 with Mark R

E2 5c from the Rippemoff belay, but doing it all in one pitch then it may just be worth very bottom end E3
