Pickpocket** E4 6a
[Picking a pocket, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
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

cracking route! gaining the ramp involved some really dynamic slaps and a big rock over and then some more delicate but precarious climbing. the ledges give a welcome rest and the top is quite exposed. 2nd go

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.
