Pollux** E1 5b
[Pollux - one of the many little-known gems of Agden Rocher, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Worth seeking out. Climb the sustained crack to ledges and a tree then move out left for a well-positioned finish up the arete. Well protected and a good bet for a first E1. © ROCKFAX

Excellent, never really hard but felt sustained and steep, luckily the easier ground and rest ledge came just in time as I was starting to get quite pumped. Good protection all the way (didn't bother clipping the peg), a peak Gem!
