70m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An ancient classic; an excellent yet daunting prospect. A rockfall at the start makes the first pitch's grade a little uncertain.
1) 4c, 25m. Climb up the groove to the chimney above, and continue to an overhang, move left to belay in a slot cave (possible belay to reduce drag). Climb out and traverse leftwards, to gain the base of a small chimney. Move up to belay.
3) 5b, 20m. Move up to the big roof above, then traverse strenously leftwards until beneath a flared crack. Battle your way up this feature to reach a scoop; trend rightwards to finish. © Rockfax

Led crux pitch, which alone felt E3 5c.

Most certainly not E2, Stiff E3 more appropriate. 1st pitch is about 5a but quite intimidating, 2nd pitch sustained 5c from the start of the traverse to halfway up crack. Well worth more attention!

Felt close to e4... Not e2

Definitely not E2; hell, it's pretty out there for E3!! Amazing though, what a journey.

First pitch really nice position. Second pitch hard traverse with a mean crux up the flared crack

Epic route. Exposed and strenuous. I was found wanting leading the second pitch and nearly had to resort to aid. First pitch 5b following the rockfall.

Missed out crux crack via Salty Dog. Probably still E3 5c this way.
