Felt much harder than 6b to me! the technical bits are strenuous so was pumped when I got to the steep bit! Definitely could do with one more bolt just above the roof - I used a large nut and had to rest on it.

Confidence in bridging improved due to being the only option

Tom led this, found it hard, okay bridging moves which looked like the hard bit, then got the good holds, and just couldn't do it! Messed up my feet, slipped off and had to haul myself up and over! Got lucky!
