The Bike Shop* 6c

Rockfax Description
Make powerful moves using a side-pull to gain a crack and better holds next to a huge rock scar. Pull through the overlap and finish up the wall above it. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
An interesting ride! Make an undercut 'jump-start' just right of the shot-hole to gain jugs and then hang on tight for an awkward sequence involving long reaches and hidden holds to the big ledge. Use the big flake on the left lightly, and with some trepidation, to reach over for better holds above the roof.

Timo Austino - 27/Oct/12 with Dave Bart

This is my first 6c outdoors! I used a clip stick on the second bolt. I decided it wasn't worth decking out. Powerful moves and it took me a while to work out the sequence but it was great getting to the top.

Pissed off. Went back for a clean lead after taking a single fall on my onsight attempt. Faffed and flailed around taking 4 falls/rests this time.

Fell having made the crux move, through lack of willing to commit to the next. Made it comfortably after sorting my head out. Pissed off.
