A super little route which is quite tricky for the short. The climbing is delicate and exposed but never quite as serious as it feels. Climb to the flake and lace it, and the break, with wires. Make a tricky step up to stand on the holds on the flake, commit to some slopers and reach the upper groove. Finish more easily to a single-bolt lower-off.

Firstly a very good route with plenty of variety, a mad crux and continual interest. Secondly I would say E2 because although the crux is hard it's right by the gear, the "bold" wall above is 5b tops and then it's a romp. But no less satisfying for that.
