easy enough climbing but scary top out on loose and dusty blocks a fair way up

Soloed to check it out as an escape route, to save the swim back. Good for the job.

Not a lot of gear and possible fall onto the ledge. Technical lower down with not much for your hands....either i was having a bad day or this felt like an E1.
