Absolutely ferocious boulder problem lower down, E1 5c would be more accurate unless I missed a hold or two (pretty sure I didn't). The rest of the climb is pretty straight-forward and reasonably protected, though pulling through the mini-roof on the yellow wall seems to only be protected by cams in very dodgy rock. You could have a big fall here and hit the ledge. Great climb **

Avoiding the dodgy looking overhang at the top adds a little spice.

Hard low move. Really struggled to mantle into the niche. Straight forward after, once I started using my feet. Lots of lovely edges.

Strenuous lower half, particularly pumpy placing the crucial wires, delicate top half, becoming increasingly nervy as the gravity defying overhangs begin to prey on the mind...!

Good independent start, but the higher you go the closer it gets to Social Criticism (which has better gear). This makes it feel a bit eliminate.

To round off a fun day of repeat ascents! This one felt easy for the grade. I didn't find it necessary to place any wires blind as the guidebook suggests.
