Vietnamerica E1 5b
[Vietnamerica, Pordenack Point, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
A tense little pitch that is now more serious following a rockfall. Start at a sentry box where a couple of blocks have disappeared.
Move up into the sentry box and make some bold moves to and then up a thin crack in the wall above on crunchy rock to a finishing groove just before the top. © ROCKFAX

Took a fall about 1/3 the way up due to a foothold crumbling. Got straight back on and finished it, first E1.
