Thin on Top** 6a+
[Thin on Top, F6a. Penmaen, 3 kb]22m. Breaks out L from Trench Warfare (the prominent crack/groove) to climb the R facing groove in the upper wall just R of White Magic. Start at the prominent, cracked groove about 3 m R of White Magic. Climb the groove to a large flat hold at 6 m. Move L round the arete into the scoop of White Magic (1 bolt on White Magic is used). Exit the scoop via the obvious niche (where a large block used to reside) and follow the upper groove to a smooth finish.

Most enjoyable! Some really good moves on this, the hardest being the move around the groove at the second bolt.
