A Sense of Doubt** E3 6a
[A Sense of Doubt, 2 kb]18m. Good pegs allow the climbing on this impressive wall to be savoured without the seriousness of the next two routes. The crux is easier for the tall. © ROCKFAX
Well pegged, practically a sport route - F6c+

Superb, thought i was off on a couple of occasions. Managed to stay in balance and just stretch far enough for the holds :) 5 pegs

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 21/Jun/13

Lovely technical, crimpy climbing on tiny feet. Had to pop for crimps twice as I couldn't reach so I would agree that its harder for the short!
catblack - 2nd β - 16/Jun/13 with Andy Barker

Nicely chalked by the previous ascentionists. A great technical route on which height would be an advantage.

the only peg that is decent is the last one but on the positive side there are quite a few of them... defiantly didn't feel like a sport route to me. but the climbing is really steady with good holds never too far away making you feel mostly secure when on it. it was good sustained climbing and felt around 6b/+ to put a sport grade on it never 6c+. nothing harder than British 6a on it. top route ***

So close, bottled it moving to the third peg and had to reverse the moves. Next time.

Gumery - TR dog - 28/Jan/12 with Gaz

Tricky to read - hard work all done by Kev on the onsight. E3 6a probably fair for the over-6ft, but E4 6b should still be the guidebook grade.
PeteH - 2nd O/S - 13/Nov/11 with Kev Avery

Quality route! Ive got to get back and lead this.
MarkRoe - 2nd O/S - 05/Oct/11 with Woody

Good climbing, but only 6b/+. Never the 6c+ folks suggest.
