Pushed down on a peg as a handhold at the crux. Will have to come back for it.

Crux is definitely easier for the tall as the description says. Was almost off a few times.

More of a TR as Jim took out gear, thin class climbing but fairly straight forward moves, hopefully try on lead next time. (Probably 6a for me as tallish)

Second go. Hard to read with no chalk on the holds. Felt easy on second attempt when holds were visible.

cant believe some people are suggesting its 6b+....found it hard saying that the footholds around the crux were dripping

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!

Andrew Barker 16/Jun/13 Lead β

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

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.

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.

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