Highballed. Went fairly central & direct, as described in BMC guide. Gives a cruxy route, with quite a hard stand up then a stretch for the top for the short. Also highballed a line much closer to left edge, as UKC description seems to suggest: some nice moves on fingery edges & arete before stepping right to top out. Easier but worse landing. Giving two fingers to mortality on the first anniversary of the death of my good friend & climbing partner, Ralph. (2 mats, no spotter.)

Seemed harder than 5b, and scarier than E2, backed off... Not sure I'll bother going back

Very high foot for me near the top. Overgrown topout.
