An enticing but bold line. Climb carefully up the shallow open groove to the small overhang, where there is a thread and a good hold. Gain the thin flake above, step left and finish more easily.

Some nice technical moves with good thread protection. Easy at E1 IMO.

Not sure where the good thread protection was but I didn't have much that would have kept me off the deck until I was past the little roof. The climbing is steady for 5b but not sure it's that easy for the grade given how bold it felt.
