Seemed very hard at the top for 6a if you don't head off left!

Tried going directly up past the final two bolts: there's no way, surely, that it can be 6a if you don't scuttle off left?

with Frederik Seelig
Paul Baxter 27/Sep/15 Lead dog

Stepped left on final section - no way does it go at 6a without!

Nice climb till the blank top to be honest I think the climb could be cut short as the top is a waste of time scooting out to the left and then back over, nice up till then though

Nice and steady, if somewhat tougher at the top. Jumped on this straight after Dreamscape, so nearly ran out of steam.

Allowed myself to be persuaded by Alex to give it a go, despite being tired and the sea spray making everything slimy. Predictably, I was tired and the climb was slimy. Slipped off the finger ledge twice and strained by elbow. Game over. Decent size falls though, the first preceded by a manly grunt of exertion.
