Good fingery crux - preceded in my case by much speculative upping and downing. E2 in CC guide, but E1 is probably fair, assuming you spot the good gear. My first route at this impressive cliff.

My guide said e2 and I thought I had ticked my first e2. Gutted. Lol.

Used the crack on the right for the crux. Made it about 5b.

Great climb, crux can be well protected and the crucial hold can be quite hard to find. Eventually got it after moving feet a bit higher.

I thought the crux move was hard ... required some chickening out before committing. (and mostly because jay kay showed up at the top, and I didn't want to fall in front of him.) The rest of the route is straightforward.
