18m. An equally good experience to Pinch an Inch. Climb to positive holds in the groove. Make a series of technical moves up and right and then back left before easier ground and a lower-off. © ROCKFAX

1 fall. Didn't give it enough respect as I thought it was a 6a (which turned out to be to the left). Thought it was a little stiff for 6a :-p. Technical climbing which eases up the higher you go.

I'd been on the bottom part of the climb before according to my logbook, but I don't remember it. I was told it was a 6a so I got on as a second and climbed it. Found it hard, but couldn't believe it when I was told afterwards that it was a 6b+ - I've never climbed one clean before! Now I'm working on building up the confidence to lead it.

Inch Perfect (6b) in the CC guide? Nice, technical climbing. I'm sure the direct version on a mono wasn't necessary! Good contrast to the routes on Blacknor. AE, FBC.
