Perplexity*** E6 6b
[Pete Robins Ground Up on Perplexity E6 6b, Millstone, 2 kb]24m.

Rockfax Description
The steep arete is technical as far as a band of crusty rock. Step right and climb the difficult slanting groove, and the headwall. Holds were chipped off after the first ascent but it is still climbable at the same grade. Some ancient bolts provide much-needed protection. © ROCKFAX
