Harshly downgraded from 6b imo. Crux in lower third, & doesn't get much easier - rested (to examine options!) before leaving second bolt, & again on last bolt (a little pumped/not warmed up on first route of the day). Shame on me!

Rested between 2nd and 3rd bolt where there's not much for right foot, could re-do clean.

Good route, though I found the start a bit hard due to lack of reach. The crack at the top is really good - get ready to jam.

Hardish section lower down and a cruise above. Bit loose..

Felt second clip was quite committing and backed off, tried with first two bolts clipped and made it to the last bolt before grabbing a wobbly jug and exiting rightwards before clipping chains. My conscience won't let me claim this one.

Very nice line which flows all the way up. Tricky first couple of clips though. Guidebook has changed to 6a+ which is probably fair.

Harder and better than Upminster Kid. Need to stay direct for quality at the bottom.
