Not too hard once I decided how to do it, but took a long time including some time spent on the rope. I seemed to find everything after the first move or 2 pretty straightforward.

Didn't progress beyong first bolt as didn't want to draw blood on the holds.

Tricky start and then pretty committing to second bolt with probable ground fall. Quality physical climbing after that with plenty of commitment needed to keep moving up beyond clips. Got utterly savaged by the tree at the top too. Brilliant. Very hard work for 6a!
