The right wall of the corner has some fluttery moments, with poor gear. High in the grade.

Probably worth E2 if you stick strictly to the runners on route.

A route that tests gear placing skills more than climbing ability. I'd agree with Roger Whetton, could be E2 if you stick rigidly to the line of the route for gear. If you go slightly off, then top end E1

On re-examination the holds seem to have got larger and the (on route) gear much better - it seemed really like E1 5b this time.

Using only the gear (opposing nuts with a sling and a cam) in the main horizontal break, I found this quite a bit stiffer than the neighbouring St Peter.

A nice sequence of about four moves, hence a decent fall onto the ledge, but definitely not harder than 5b.

The crux is getting off the ground, then ok gear in the horizontal and a good nut out left (but still on line) and a couple of tricky moves up and right to some more gear and an easier finish. Felt mid E1. Might need a clean after someone pulled a flake off high up.
