no way 6b. 6b+ especially on a hot day.

In heat, difficult to read, unsure of where it goes.

Pretty tough. I'd say a solid 6b+. Found the sequence hard to work out but got there in the end.

Got it clean today.

Even by Dancing Ledge standards this seems very hard for the grade. Have a sequence worked out and should get it clean next time.

Really hard, and not worth a star anywhere. Even at dancing ledge, which is all a bit terrible... (acquired taste I'm told?) The warmup isn't supposed to be such an epic fight, but then the conditions were not good, 3 degrees and very greasy, so perhaps its not as ugly as I recall.

Blew the onsight by falling off the easy bit above the crux!
