Genesis** 6b+
[Genisis, dyserth castle slab, just approaching the crux, 1 kb]The best line on the slab. Excellent, thin slab climbing with the crux coming just as the wall steepens up. E3 6a before being bolted.

Excellent route, by far the best route of the crag and the only route that we did that feels like an independant line. Excellent friction moves, technical but never desperate.
