Bloody amazing line! Such nice climbing as well as pretty much perfect gear all the way. As long as you don't get too pumped and climb it efficiently its definitely soft E2
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 30/Jul/11 with Martin Stanfield, Rob Stanfield

Jack made it look stupidly easy, so I probably went in too relaxed and therefore found it more pumpey than I anticipated towards the top. Soft E2 With constant soft 5b moves making it rather tiring.
