The wall behind the bush has a few hard pulls to start, then it eases with nice moves on calcite rugosities. © Rockfax

Climbed to the L of the 1st two bolts. One move felt similar in difficulty to the crux of "No Way Patience is a Virtue" (so perhaps hard for 6a) but it was much less sustained so is easier overall. Looked much easier to the R of the bolts, not sure which way is right.

Very easy if climbed right of the bolts but a different proposition if climbed on the left.

Easiest 6a I've done, hardest bit was getting through the brambles to start!

Another brilliant climb, similar to it's 6b neighbour to the left but a little easier. Tricky start and much easier above. Looks like overgrown tripe from the bottom but far from it

Too close to corner to be any good. The big lumps of quartz are cool though.

May have used a few holds in crack to the right. Ok did use holds in crack to the right.
