Rockfax Description
The belay is a bit too low, so top-out first to get the tick. Only 6a if not climbed past the belay. © Rockfax

This is now a 6c in the Rockfax guide and the lower-off has been moved to the very top so there is no 6b, grade here should be updated. The crux is interesting :P took quite a pause perched bellow it while figuring it out, A one move wonder but a good move. Take care at the bottom, first bolt is super high on not exactly easy holds, and you're climbing above a big crumbly slope of death.

Did a 6b+ and a 6c after this and no move was anywhere near as hard as the top moves on this!Far better left as a decent 6a to the old lower off final moves are probably 6c!

not sure about this, didn't top out so only 6a. Quite hard to get to lower off, harder than 6a I reckon.

couldn't do the final move and I'm 6ft. bloody annoying.

The 6a bit only. Couldn't do the hard one or two moves to make the whole route a 6b - IMO a pointless extension anyway, especially as there isn't a proper lower-off.

The fierce crux (easier for the tall) was conquered clean by yours truly 2nd go by an imaginative (and hard!) bouldery sequence.

What belay?! Topped out by cheating and belayed from the rope wrapped around some big blocks.
