Tricky crux move requiring very precise footwork and weight distribution. Very poorly protected up to and including crux height. Plenty of pro for remainder of the route, though unnecessary as it's very straightforward. Slight drizzle caused foot to slip at crux move. Saved by bomber #1 nut. That said, I'm not a fan of slabs (never was).

Took quite a while to figure our and then commit, but fine once I'd done it.

So pleased to do this as my first real E1. Decent climb that I think suited me really well, but for one move being hard when you're short! Nice and safe too, as the crux is right above a pretty safe little nest of gear. Shame about the top-out!
