βeta: Don't quite understand why if the thin crack start which is also the start for Javlin E1 which I thought was the harder section than the so called " butch crack" above that the route should get E2?, maybe I just got lucky and got the sequence right higher up on first attempt, good route though

βeta: Agree with the above comment. I have done this route a few times now and now having prior knowledge I find the initial crack at the start (5a in the BMC book) harder than the 5c upper crack!

βeta: I'd say upper crack more technical than butch, with obvious challenge to reach and move up on a layaway.
