Ecliptic E1 5b
2 pitches. 5a,5b. The top pitch starts strenuously up a little capped corner to a resting ledge and dubious peg. A neat little sequence of moves left lead to the base of a shallow groove and hand crack. Arrange good gear here and commit to the bulge above.

Top rope solo. Repeat of my first e1 lead. Felt that the crux is right at the top. Possibly due to the vegetation. Climbed 2nd pitch first. 1st pitch second. Missed a crucial grip on first pitch and found it really hard! 1st pitch vegetated.

Nice first climb for the day. I was spooked by a bird flying out of a crack a good 3 or 4 metres above my last gear. This kept the feeling of boldness. A nice climb. Some Hawthorne nonsense on the first pitch.

Nice and steady, and not at all bold and loose, as suggested by the guide book writeup.
