Thin cracks lead to good runners in the second break. The gritty and gripping exit is too far above them for comfort.

maybe I lack imagination but this felt safe enough and soft at E3. Surely you won't hit the floor.

pretty steady-more like E2. gets really sandy after heavy rain though

Fine at E2 5c if exiting slightly leftwards. Not E3 as at least one cam is bomber

I agree should be E2 as cams would stop you hitting the floor and the wall apart from last move is quite easy. Plus topout isn't actually all that bad if you keep your cool.

Very nice climbing and the top's not nearly as bad as it looks. However it's difficulty is directly proportional to how pumped one gets refusing to accept the good cam slot is the only gear (guilty as charged).

Wasn't that sandy at the top and I toped out in the rain ;o) E2 5c's right in my book

"Surely you won't hit the floor". No, but I can tell you from experience it's pretty close. Having bagged quite a few E2s this year I'd say this is harder.
