Flying Circus* E2 5c
[Summer doesn't last very long . . ., 4 kb]

Rockfax Description
The left-hand arete is a tempting prospect that is also reasonably tame for the grade. Start at the left end of the sloping ledge under the arete.
Move up left to a niche and step up and left before traversing right below the arete to a small ledge at the bottom of a groove. From a short distance up the groove move left to the arete and climb thin cracks to a small ledge on the left. Make some tricky moves up the rib and finish up the arete. © ROCKFAX

Found the steep start with low gear the crux, the rest of it is very steady.

Felt like a classic VS. I think you have to make it pretty eliminate to warrant E2.
Paz - 2nd β - 26/Aug/07 with AB

Felt a bit of a soft touch (perhaps because it was in the sun!).
