Piece of Mind*** E6 6b
[Slim going for it on the tenuous "Piece of Mind" E6-6b., 2 kb]12m. The unprotected blunt rib with the crux at the top was an astounding ascent before sticky rubber and remains a bold and infrequently climbed pitch. Sadly top-roping it is polishing the crucial holds just below the top - do you really have to? © ROCKFAX

Finally got round to doing this, many years after first trying it. Pretty straightforward. Also tried Obsession but can no longer do the moves...has it lost pebbles??

Clean on-sight on top-rope. I would need considerably bigger balls to solo this! Very insecure!

Was genuinely surprised to get this first go on a bottom rope! Had bits of beta at the top and the rope probably helped balancing, beautiful route nonetheless!
jack1996 - TR β - 30/Oct/11 with Sid, tom s

I finished the route, glad i top roped it took a slip half way up, estimate that would have been the fall without top rope

Waiting for dry conditions paid off. 1 go on TR then soloed. Very polished but still a mega-classic.
nathanlee - Solo RP - 29/May/11 with Dom Lee

Very Insecure, wanted to solo but mum wouldn't let me, next time!
thevoice - TR O/S - 21/May/11

Wanted the solo, but a warm evening with no fingertips and only 2 pads seemed like the wrong time :p
saalty - TR RP - 16/Apr/11 with eddy

practised twice on a toprope then went all out for the lead, got the wire in on lead then onto the top...awesome

had to work it, lots, maybe if it was alot colder and ideal friction, it would be a buzz to solo
