Felt really off balance once stepped up into the niche and the gear would have been awkward to place, a good on-sight from Matt. E3?.

A bit gritty. Clean second though - well chuffed. Good on sight lead by John.

This route felt like E3 5c(gets it in Rockfax). Tried it once or twice before taking a huge whipper. Eventualy led it clean placing all gear on lead
