18m. Climb to the diagonal flake to its end, finish direct. Good gear throughout.

This is considerably harder (and bolder) than Bring Me Sunshine - swap the grades and they would be about right. Where is the 'good gear' at the top if you go direct? - 15 feet of no gear at all, unless you escape to the right!

I'd go with the comments about being harder than bring me sunshine, but there is good gear at the top.

Beware the crappy surface rock on the top of the route.
My hand-hold just disintegrated as I was topping out and I fell off, stopping about 2/3rds of the way down the route.

Hard E1 and a very good route. Took a while to work out the sequence at the top of the flake. Is steeper than it looks!
