Did the easier RH start. Ran out of steam / exceeded pain level at the top and slumped for a rest, then finished ok.

Direct Start.

Starting from the left took a couple of goes, 6a? Excellent jamming once established in the crack.

Perfect jams all the way up, feels very easy after the start if you can jam.

Came in from the right as the direct start seems desperately reachy. Still pretty hard work - E1 5c as per Over the Moors seems right.

Brutal jamming crack, which gets more desperate with height. I like to think i can jam, but this is a tester!!!!

The more obvious start is worthwhile and still hard 5b. Very good jamming.
