Previously the last route in the quarry, now in the middle of the sector!

Should have tried on lead really but didn't know I could reach past the crux.

Screwed up the crux with a silly error. Wasn't worthwhile enough to get back on it though. With a long enough reach this is probably only 6a+.

1st RP, polished in hot sun. Fell off being daft.

Nice moves but bailed off the crimpy crux to protect fingers.

Use the LHS crimp match, go up to the side pull with the right up to the nice hold with left and match.

Chuffed to do a clean onsight of my first attempt at a 6b. Crux is getting from the second to the third bolt. Easy going after that.

Top roped from Latrec (on the right side). When at the top we discovered that one of the 2 bolts forming the anchor has fallen. Be careful when leading.

Leo Woodhead 29/Mar/14 Lead O/S

Average route with a tricky crux, other than that fairly straight forward.

Awkwardly bolted. Bolt on route to R was nearer so cheated by clipping it temporarily.

Warmed up on this by mistake thinking it was an F5. Found it pumpy and hard. Was really relieved and happy when we later spotted it was actually a F6a+
