Tried this thinking I was on "Nice route, shame about the ledge". Couldn't get the very tricky direct start so came in from the left. It was fairly straightforward up to the top at which point I realised I wasn't on the 6b+ I thought I was on, so exited out left on Shot Yer Bolt.

Found it quite easy up to the last bolt, then couldnt get any further. Theres a clean patch of rock past the last break, maybe a hold has fallen off?
