22m. A hard problem on the blank slice of slab immediately right of Slight of Hand. Start just left of the foot of the grassy ramp, at a sapling. Climb up directly above the sapling, passing just right of the big horizontal slot, and make thin, insecure moves, on almost non-existent holds, straight up to an incipient hairline crack. After a couple more hard moves the crack widens to form a good fingerhold and nut placement. Finish easily up the wide cracks, as for Slight of Hand.

Much harder without the miniscule holds chalked, despite being on top rope. Would be very testing (and scary) as a pure onsight. On reflection, probably E4 6a.

Not warmed up enough - no real holds, pure smearing although is it possible to have 6a moves on this angle of slabs?

Could these be those elusive 6a slab moves at FCQ? Maybe - need some feedback.

A scary solo. Maybe ok on the lead; between the slot at 3m and the good fingerlock there's a microwire placement which looks reasonable. If it turns out to be good, then maybe E2 6a?
