Red Route I*** 6b
[Ross McCormick on Red Route 1, Toix., 3 kb]44m.

Rockfax Description
This long single-pitch is one of the most popular routes on the crag (therefore a bit polished), upgraded by popular demand. Take plenty of quickdraws. The start is the crux, but the thin slab above provides an interesting finish. Descend by abseil. © ROCKFAX

stopped at the lower off on the left. felt hard for 6a+ but it was a bit windy. didn't like it much either. I wasn't surprised when my belayer announced that we were on the 6c on the left (we weren't!)
Jonathan Emett - Lead dnf - 16/Oct/12 with orange robbie

finished at mid height lower off!never 6a+,nearer to 6c and very hard with rusting bolts!not worth doing in my opinion!
jon_gill1 - Lead dnf - 08/Oct/12 with ross garfoot

Great climbing but felt hard for the grade and quite scary. Lots of rusty bolts to help sow the seed of doubt.
