βeta: Bizarrely great route. All easy 5a/5b moves, but it feels really bold as soon as you leave the ground! Definitely better than Small Arctic Mammal. Good slab climbing technique needed, and no real strenuous bits, but given Sundowner at Frogatt is E2 5a, this might just sneak into the E2 catagory, even without the real death-fall height.
