Placed my nutkey (!) before going off route left on wet crimps, making it a very scary E3 5b kind of route. Was very gripped at the top.

a very good E1 although at some points there are few hand holds and you need to look hard for them.

Got bogged down at the top moves for ages. First route of the day and not warmed up, but the 'so called' 5a move turned out to be about right once committed to. Bit run out though!!
