Abrade with Me * 6b
[Nick Taylor gets rough - entering the finishing groove of 'Abrade with me' (6b), Intake, on the first ascent. , 3 kb]28m. The steep line, left of Abide with me, finishing at the steep cracks. Proper lower-off now in place but you have to do the final crack to get there - like trying to jam between two chainsaws, extremely painful and even likely to cause injury. there are face holds as well, you only need to use one or two jams, place your hands (and feet) carefully.

Excellent, steep and sustained climbing up to the cracks, had to have rest at overhang , then battled my way up wide finishing crack only to find hangers missing from top lower off. I threaded this with quickdraw to get back down to last bolt, then lowered off from here. Looks like most people lower off from second to last bolt and miss out the cracks.
