My lead on this one, didn't really struggle with the pumpy overhang, but had to take a rest before working out the difficult leftward move for clip three. It's a very tricky ballsy balance move which for me makes this a hard 6a+, finished the route with just one rest. Felt a bit better when my partner had the same struggle for clip three and after popping off the overhang.

No idea how to get from bolt 2 to 3, felt nigh on impossible even on top rope. The top 1/3 is very loose and I didn't want to stand on any of the very dubious looking holds.

TR Shunt. Tried this before but gave up after resting for too long, this time felt much better, but still had to rest in one place about mid way. Nice climb.

6a+ as opposed to 6a. Tough, overhang took some working out then was okay. Technical higher section was really hard and I'm not sure how I did it! Very lacking in holds. Then a crumbly top which made me glad I didn't lead it. Erin didn't finish which made me even more surprised that I finished it!

Warm-up that became a bit of a mess - Certainly a 6a+ I'd say, a few tenuous moves and not the ideal warm-up route! Beware loose rock higher up as with all these here.

Had to rest after pulling over the first bulges as I was a bit pumped and a bit freaked out by how loose and dirty the route was. All the routes on the "knob" are good but seriously need more traffic as they are quite dirty/dusty and there is a lot of loose rock in the band of "cheese" that runs across at 2/3 height.
