Nervous Laughter E1 5b
[Nervous Laughter (E1 5B), 3 kb]The steep slab through the 2 slight roofs right of Mayday, has plenty of holds to make up for the less than plentiful protection
Follow Third Time Lucky passing and obvious rock scar on the left until a small ledge beneath a bulge. Surmount the bulge with care and gain the slabs above, climb these and then the steeper slab above (crux) to a second overlap. Bigger holds abover this lead up and slightly left to a loose finish. Belay on nearby stumps of far away trees.

Repeat ascent. Nearby stumps are rotting quickly so safer to belay to the solid trees, well back from the edge. This requires a 60mt rope!

8 wires and 2 cams in 20 ish metres seemed quite reasonable to me. most were small but all solid

Easier than Third Time Lucky. Friendly climbing but hardly inspiring gear.
