Travel Bug E1 5b
18m. Start at the lowest point of the slab. Climb a short rib, cross the diagonal crack (of Bishop's Move) and continue to a horizontal crack. Stand up in this to reach the left-rising crack (of Talk to the Hand). From the base of this, make interesting moves up and right to gain another, shorter crack. Continue direct to the overlap and carefully rock over left onto the edge of a suspect flake; then traverse leftwards to the belay tree.

Very thin up to crack, didn't have time to put gear in so climbed on until the crack just before coming over the lip. Pulled a hold on the loose flake, Didn't fall but I have no idea how I actually managed to stay on.

Thin move or two crossing rightwards to the higher crack. Rockover over the overlap isn't hard, but it's above gear and the flake that provides the holds is suspect. Both leader and second are exposed on the rockover and traverse to the tree.
