Shin Gi Tai** 6c+
16m. Bolted direct version of SGT, starting between Bogger Bob and SGT's original start. Possibly retro-bolts the start of Hong Kong Garden.

Really good route. Best at the cliff that I've done. 6c left of the bolts. To the move right to the crack. 6c+ up the overhanging crack all the the way. I did the 6c but wasn't to know till after. Well pleased to get the chains and getting both in before letting go. Lol.

The 6c way (from the 2012 Wye supplement, although the description's not too clear). Straight up just left of the bolts until stood on the thin ledge, then move right along the ledge, below the last two bolts, into the crack , then up the crack to finish.

Definitely 6c, not +. Excellent route but the final foothold is somewhat polished, requiring some cunning or crimpy clipping

Got all the moves second go on top rope with one slip low down. Think I could get it on lead, but the first half is just about at my current limit. The crack is straightforward once you find the jams.

Felt straight forward up until the last crack section
monsteratt - Lead O/S - 23/Mar/14

Pleasant, such a nice wall. A very soft touch though, so many places to rest... feels like you could stop to have lunch half way up.
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead O/S - 23/Mar/14 with Shijing Hu

Stayed right away from the flakes but that still wasn't as hard as the start of clipping the belay so probably soft still. Managed 3 heel hooks though so must be a pretty good route!

richardr - Lead dog - 08/Mar/14 with Duncan

Finally managed to clip the abseil station. And to pull a loose hold off somewhere low down on the left.

Would like to claim I did this, but I got too pumped trying to clip the abseil station with the right hand in a wet crack.
pheotleyr - Lead dog - 16/Feb/14 with Caleb, Neil

Dogged it to put up the draws/dry some wet holds. Went second time no problems. Crux is getting off the floor! Following the natural line of flakes and edges slightly to the left is lovely 6b+

Not quite sure where the 6c+ version goes but the 6c route was nice, if soft
Cheese Monkey - Lead O/S - 23/Nov/13 with Peter

What I did definitely wasn't 6c+, more like 6b+ / 6c. Great route with a somewhat silly step left to the abseil station to finish.
pheotleyr - TR O/S - 23/Nov/13 with Ben

Doh! Great route.
Jon_Warner - Lead dog - 16/Nov/13 with Jenni, Dave Pattinson

Cool route. Props up to anyone who climbs crack pure without undercut!
derico - Lead O/S - 16/Nov/13 with Sadact

2nd go. 6c version (staying left as you get up onto the ledge at 2/3 height rather than heading straight for the crack).

Mel's first lead belay so pumped out waiting for slack on every bolt. Should go next time no drama. Really nice climbing and a legit 2 star route. Crux is clipping the anchor?

finally ticked after having worked out a sequence for the top section for the vertically challenged!! A brilliant route
shazza65 - Lead RP - 14/Feb/12 with johncorber

6c? Nice, but wandered to the left at about bolt 3. Clips alerady in & that was crucial!

Stone Muppet - Lead O/S - 15/Jan/12 with bc

Onsight!! I couldn't comment on the grade, I don't climb much sport and never anything as tough as this. Brilliant climb, lovely movements and very pumped at the top. I followed line of least resistance and found myself to the right of last bolt and lower off. Very happy with this. Addendum, not 6c+, more like 6b+

clean on second attempt. Great route. Easy 6c+ or maybe 6c

A great route, although the logical way to climb it wanders up the face. From the lower ledge I climbed up leftwards towards bogger bob then came back right to finish up the crack of SGT. Like this I thought it was more like soft 6c than 6c+. Lovely climbing though!
