Took a good 3m fall onto the slab and a 5m roll down it on the first attempt as I was too far to the right. After a little body repair I got back on and finished the route properly. Felt a little easy for an E1.
Polished. Especially on the wall above the chockstone visible from the floor. Protection is also quite poor here. After a bit of scrambling about inbetween pitches the second pitch was a nice climb with some interesting moves and better protected.
Done both with and without the direct finish. Direct is more upper body strength and less technical. Possibly why I perfered it? Great climb. Certainly worth doing. Protection is solid and easily avalible. Last time I climbed this I was belaying at the top in the hail.
