Found this pretty difficult. Had to dyno to the jug low down due to greasy crimps, then climbed the crux slightly 'au cheval'. Felt ill, felt really tired and it felt well greasy, perhaps it'll be easier another time.

No guidebook and not sure of the exact line. Finished on the left which I believe now to be incorrect and used a hold out right for the crux.

Ground up lead but certainly no onsight this with this route! Soloed ok up to break a couple of times but didn't fancy the top so down climbed to ground both times.2 weeks later tried to lead on a very cold windy day and got flash pumped at the break so sulked off to the Diff on the right. Finally led clean today and it still felt really hard for 5b and quite committing for E1 also

Used ledge at left hand side before tackling the top arete on the right side, (front face). Felt E1, but again it was hot and sweaty
