Fine intricate face climbing. Weave up the centre of the slab (small wires and threads) to the horizontal break. Take a deep breath and balance on up the slab past one tiny wire. Escaping right from halfway up the slab, or placing a side-runner in Joint Effort, drops the grade to a (still excellent) E2.
