Gain the thin hanging crack from the left by an extended reach (an oft used side-runner brings it down to E2 ) then sprint to the easier ground of the central crack system.

Quite easy for grade, but very good climbing! Deserves at least the one star, and people with big hands/fingers will prefer it to Boggart!!

I agree on all your points. Really only deserves E2 5c though Shirley?

Yeah probably agree! Gear is bomber after the long reach, and you aren't far from the ground anyway! Definately easier than 6a for the tall...

really good climbing, that move is cool. I would say E4 easy6a

I'm 5'9" and found the reach/dyno quite tricky. The repeated swings to the floor was fun though! ;o)

For me it felt like 6a, but maybe because we did it during hard rain?
In any case never E4. Maybe E2 6a?
But the gear is bomber and the dyno great fun. To top out in the complete wet crack was the crux then.
