The moves are nice - good climb. Only climb I've done in this area but I would argue that the blank top section and snappy rock earns it 'E2 5a'. You're well into deck out territory before there's a hint of a gear placement, even if you're past the crux. Compare to 'Sinecure' Which is also a sea cliff slab E1 5B (and it's also low in the tech grade). That can be absolutely laced with gear, hence the E1.

Second time around, reckon E2 is fair. Some committing moves with none too reassuring gear. Top climbing all the same.
