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

6c sounds about right for this, delicate technical moves

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

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.

Not sure I got this one right, had to rest a couple of times to work out the right sequence which still seemed hard for the grade.
