A gnarly, but rewarding pitch. There is at least one awkward clip high on the route. © Rockfax

Botched the crux but pulled through fortunately. A good route with a techy crux.

Some really enjoyable moves, but end of the day and a bit nervy on the crux. One to come back for!

1st 6c lead...yipee! Felt really good.

Missed the onsight due to the awkward clip. Felt more like F6c than the F6b+ given in the CC guide.

Wish I tried to lead this rather than top-rope, one for later in the year.

SWEET! First Fr6c flash!!! had to really think and fight...was unbelievably tired at the top so traversed into the 6a to the left and finished up that...run-out but possibly a bit easier? I dunno. so happy!

Awesome little climb. Can get a cool sideways heel for a no hands rest before the crux. Sweet route!

Sadly - first day back on rock and worried by the 5th bolt, somebody had retreated earlier that day. wish I'd lead as I walked up it. Oh, well, live and learn.

Glad it now gets 6c. Two hard moves for me - a long reach to get over break, then the dodgy clip and 'offy' crux.
