Backburner*** 6a+
25m. A thin and tricky to read crux makes for a very tough on-sight.

For the sake of cleaning the clips and putting up a toppers on 'The Balance of Power' or referred to as "the tip shredder" after two failed attempts at it.

Forgot how thin the crux is on this, I think it could justify F6b for sure. Lovely route though!

Elle wanted the clip leaving in then didn't want to climb it so I had to go up again, and found it way harder than earlier in the day. (Maybe over-confidence that i'd already done it) The thin crux moves are 6b I reckon.)
