On Jupiter And Mars** E1 5b
[South Wales sandstone E1, 3 kb]Probably the best E1 on sandstone. Follow the underside of the stepped roofs from left to right, a tricky move at the end allows access to a ledge (thread a long sling in a vertical borehole) and an easy finish.

A pleasant VS with a one move E1 crux. Took me ages to commit to the move but was OK in the end. Doesn't say much for S Wales sandstone if this is the best E1!

Really not all that. Dodgy rock at the bottom and the top, with a couple of nice moves tucked in the middle.

Felt more like HVS to me? Maybe the recent alpine chossfests have affected me badly. Good route, though.
