The pleasant narrow face has a technical start.

Worth E1 for the tricky start with nasty landing? After that it is ok and even the start ain't that hard.

A good route. It gets E1 in the BMC guide. A bold and technical start to half height gear then one more tricky move to reach the easy top section. I did get some dodgy gear in near the start (a friend zero on the right and an undercammed friend 3 in the pocket) but I wouldn't trust it. Hard for an HVS slab.

Tricky move but not so hard with commitment. The top half is easy.

Definitely soft E1 (vs hard HVS). Good start followed by a little slab work and a great move into and out of the upper break. A real nice solo to tick at the end of the day if you've been working the E's on the rest of the crag.
