A good little micro-route which is losing its battle with the ivy. Climb the wall to the flake then swing left to make some hard moves up to the break (avoid the chipped hold). Save a bit for the thin crack above.
Mind Blind, E6 6b - The direct seam to the chipped hold is bold, but a side-runner (in Kelly's Eye) reduces the grade to only E5.

The wall above the flake was quite mossy when I did this route (about 3 years ago). If it were clean, then I think low E4 is spot on. It's probably a bit too short and well protected to be middle or top end.

Cleaned, now in excellent condition.
