The direct start was too rounded and scrittely (gets E1 6a in BMC guide) so started up the VS and traversed across (E1 5b in definitive) scary rockover and scrittely slab above to the good gear below the roof. Reached up to the crack but put a jam in thumb down which meant I couldn't reach the next jam, feet slipped off the green smears, rested on rope and managed sequence next go. Felt E1 all the way though.
