E1. Start below a cave at 16m, perched above slabbier rock.
1) 5+, 22m. Climb the slab and then move left to the cave. Leave this onto a good ledge and belay (peg and nuts).
2) 6a, 20m. Climb the steep groove on the right and the crack above to a ledge. Move left into a recess and belay (nuts).
3) 5+, 20m. Climb the crack in the wall above to a roof. Pull over this and trend rightwards into a bay with thread belay.
4) 4+, 34m. Climb onto a block on the right, move back left and continue straight up the steep slab and easy groove to the top.

Overgraded: pitch 2 is not 6a and is much better protected than pitch 1.
