From a block, pull over the overlap and stand in the horizontal break awkwardly. The slab and wall above are easier.

The slab and wall didn't feel easier to me. I've done easier E1s.

i don't think the slab and wall above are anywhere near as difficult as the opening moves (i'd say 4b). but unless you place a cheeky side runner (is it in?) don't fall off!!

In reply to leon skeldon: I think you were talking about feathered friends? And I did put a side runner in, the gear in the flake is rather sketchy!

Found it ok but there is a climb at HVS left of it that was horrendous. Confusion reigns as they are called different names and graded differently in my cc book. I thought i might have been on the VS but I definietly did the route as shown in Rockfax.
