Eazy does it up the right-hand side of the slab, trending left, to reach a flake where things ease. Side-runners in the previous route protect the lower section, otherwise it is nearer E4.

All the votes indicate easy E2/5b; if you climb the HiA crack, place pro and step right under the overlap then continue up, this would probably be about right. However, NL guide starts right, and top-roping the gearless, 5c groove to the overlap certainly seemed like it would be tough E3, and you still need to get onto the slab above with no gear. Something doesn't quite add up here (and thought someone might appreciate the warning, especially given the inviting grade votes for someone fancying their first E2 lead!).

Agree with previous comment. The line in Northern Limestone is about E4 5c without siderunners high in HiA.
