Interesting top out. Went straight up the groove using tension but lay back with high left foot is the correct beta.

Good 6a first major one lead outside, only had to sit in harness once to work out the move and no falls. threaded rope through top elephants but could not climb so hands were over the top of the route. to be tried again when no fog so rock is dry and so can be done cleanly

with Marc
jennifers87 03/Jun/13 Lead O/S

Climbed as a group of four, interestingly we did the end three different ways. There is a block missing at the end. I managed to precariously palm of a low mini ledge to get to the top. Lou managed to find a tiny crimp and the boys layed back the left hand side

Loose blocks now safely removed, don't think it will affect the grade.

Layback to finish using the crack on the left rather than the loose block.

There is a very loose block in the groove at the top of this route, the block is the only obvious hold around this area. The block below this is very loose as well

What a beauty of a climb, now done a 6a outdoors( ok it was on a top rope) yipee. This newly bolted cliff is going to be very popular just glad we have the new book.

I reckon 5+ if you just clip the lower-off, 6a/6a+ if you make the last move to the top of the crag.
