Climb up the awkward bottom wall to the break, then pull over a bulge and continue up a large chalked-up flake. (Stick-clip the second staple for the 7b+ tick if the bottom is wet). Move up to undercuts then rightwards to climb a short fingery section. Then head back left and up to the break. Continue up the pumpy groove above to a high lower-off (28m). When very dry you can do the start to Barely Decent and move right at 7b+ for the full route from the ground. Originally the upper section involved a swing around the hanging arete to the right to access the top of the crag - the E5 pitch that gave the route its name! © Rockfax
