Dutch Moon* 6b

Rockfax Description
Fine technical climbing which is sadly short-lived and escapable. Start up easy rock to gain the wall which is followed on some thin holds. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A little gem. The face to the left and just right of the huge pillar give fine technical climbing throughout. (From Gary Gibson website).

Got to the holds before the side pull and hung around for too long, que some tough down-climbing. Found the sequence on the next try, really good moves! Pleased to get it.

Good warm up for the area and a great gaston move off the joint sidepull with the 6c+

Sussed the nice crux but couldn't spot the far left hold before needing a rest.

Found the middle section hard and sustained. Being a small chap, had to do a couple of hard thin moves at the crux. But theres a bolt right next to you, so not worrying. For me, definitely harder than Saga Lout, though not necessarily more fun.

Lovely technical climbing between bolts 2-5. Very easy before and after that. Went direct for the crux but fell slapping up from the massive side-pull to the grassy jug. Got it 2nd go.

The good climbing is very short lived. Hard for grade if you go very direct. Unsatisfying if you don't
