Last route of the day. Lower bit felt really hard but whether that was just down to me up and down and climbing or not I don't know. Nearly fell off at one point. Gets 6c+ on sportsclimbs.co.uk which hopefully is more like it. Tried going straight up higher up but fortunately Julie was paying attention and figured out I needed to move left. Still a bit tricky even after.

Really nasty clipping at the second bolt, make sure you have an attentive belayer. Easier after the third bolt. There is a random 4th bolt directly up from the third, which is apparently not part of the route - it doesn't go anywhere. The route goes left after the 3rd bolt.
