10m. Climb the steep wall on spaced holds to reach the rightÐhand edge of The Scoop. Jig left then right to finish, neatly outflanking the capping overlap.

Needs a fluttery heart symbol - mine was going like the clappers - even if you do get good gear in the big pocket (which I didn't). The finishing moves are on awkward slopers with an unhelpful dusting of sand and gravel.

Other than that, nice route and more like 5a, but definately E1

I concur with Chris. I ended up with stomach cramps after vomiting myself onto the top. A side runner in the roof edge to the R may be usefull.
The climbing up to the bulge is pretty straightforward.
