Nice 1st pitch climbing a flake crack. Then I led P2 and 3 in one pitch. Move through the 1st overhang is a great 5b move, then the crux move through the 2nd roof is a desperate thrutchy long reach. Really well protected. Maybe E1 5c.

Ludicrously undergraded in the new definitive. An energetic 5c pitch followed by a desperate 6a move or two. Completely out of character with the crag in general.

I would say E1 5c, the cruxes are short and well protected, the route isn't sustained. The moves on the 3rd pitch are a bit of a puzzle but the seemingly obvious isn't necessarily the way!

NOT E1! there are 2 short tricky sections which I would give E2.
