The narrow slab has a couple of nice moves. No side-runners at this grade, or award yourself an HVS if you are tempted.
I thought the moves on the upper slab was fairly easy for 5c, not sure it was 5b though. However the gear was severely lacking (unless you use side runners in the cracks which would bring the grade down to about HVS). The moves on the slab were very nice though virtually unprotected.
Led this as my first e2, having never led e1. The gear seemed to be just above halfway between the ground and the crux (ignoring rope stretch) and was pretty bomber. the moves on the slab were really nice, although maybe a bit easy for 5c? although not having climbed much at this tech grade its hard to comment.
Gear at half way, doesn't take into account rope stretch and the fact that half your body is below your rope tie-in point!
dosn't take into account you belayer doing one down the hill either, it'll be fine
realy easy for E2 gear protects every move that isn't trivial, but dissapointingly short lived
