the crux felt 6b and above has lots of sustained 6a above some pretty significant run outs (also not a slab!).
surely e5 6b - glad to know I'm not the only one that thinks this. Very memorable experience though!

Felt tired from the off. First go up fell pulling onto the 'slab'. Had a breather and then got through the crux (hard) riding a wave of lactic acid. Got tunnel vision and clipped the thread from low down nearly falling in the process. Grabbed the thread and bailed. Know what I'm doing now so will go back and have another go for sure.

Shame it doesn't get climbed more often. Great route, if a little dusty, but well worth seeking out nonetheless

Pinged off the start. Then fell off crux as flash pumped and due to communication issues couldn't get back down to the rest.

I didn't enjoy it as much as the stars made out, probably due to the route being very dirty and a few loose bits...

Great stuff. Tough crux, solid 6a, with gear quite low below you (ring on peg looks very flimsy now) but good rest soon after, and then steadier but still sustained climbing above. was told top section was very run out but there is some gear to be had.

Awesome route, good crux, then the rest is continuously sustained, just, just made made it hands peeled just as i grabbed the flimsy tree, near miss of a 40footer.

E4 6a my arse. The move past the peg felt solid 6b (must have missed something...) and another hard sction higher up with a big run-out to tthe break. More like E5 6b IMHO
