The crux pitch is 6a but there's no way this route can be considered E2.

and what mgith it be considered then?

Wouldn't E1 be a fairer reflection of the grade?

Definitely worth at least 1 star. E1 seems about right - plenty of gear on the harder pitch. However there was no way we were going to abseil down the line - the fixed belays were rubbish. We chose the safer option - scramble to the top of the pinnacle and ab down El Diamante (good job we knew where it went)
