Last bulge is the 6b+ bit. Ground has collapsed after the winter meaning the first clip is a bit high and bottom is very dirty. Just remember to look for the seam at the end!

Did this because we thought the name was funny. Not great and much easier than 6b+. Wasn't sure whether to go left or right at the top, left seemed too easy but right looked nails

I was told it was a 4+!! Got to between the last bolt and the lowering off bolts and my mind decided that this was chuffin' hard for a 4+. Up until that point I'd climbed it clean. I was probably 3 marginal moves off finishing the route. Now I know why it was marginal!
