Pickpocket* E4 6a
[Picking a pocket, 3 kb]A good start up the technical wall and ramp has some very hard moves. Above, the route loses its way amongst some big ledges and the final section is very escapable. Alternately, finish up Golden Gate or traverse right to the tree and abseil off. © ROCKFAX

Tried to lead and fell off the bottom crux. Tim then had a go and I managed to second it clean with some sneaky beta.
