Nails for me! Off more than twice while working out the middle sequence, start wasnt a picnic either.

air - Lead β - 25/Mar/13 with Lloyd

Gets 6c in cc guide. For my money it's a hard 6b+. Even when you know the moves it's no picnic. The middle lay-away crux is much easier for the tall
Wilbur - Lead RP - 23/Feb/13 with George, Vinny, Iain

georgel - Lead β - 23/Feb/13 with iain

Where you think there are no holds, there is a no hands rest! Quality route and closer to the CC guides 6c than 6b. Maybe top end 6b+.

Interesting reading the other comments! Nice start and middle section, committing between 3rd and 4th bolts. Bottled the top!

Seemed harsh for 6b for sure. Poor conditions; so windy my chalk bag was hitting me in the face! Some great balancy moves.
philhaigh - Lead dog - 14/May/12 with Natalie Haigh

Owen W-G - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Roger

Got all crux moves fine then fell once at easy top bit due to pump!
