Barriers in Time*** E6 6b
[Julian Webb making the last long reach of Barriers in Time (E6 6b), Roaches Lower Tier, 2 kb]16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. The elegant arete is superb but slightly harder for shorties. Make a tricky start to reach the first break then tackle the arete above by some hard laybacking. Friends in the second break may permit a long scraping fall to be taken. The last reach will remain in your memory for a long time! Said to be low in the grade. © ROCKFAX
