[Valentine working Cold Day, 3 kb]12m. Climb the wall left of Anne Marie Paid My Fee. Climb the wall direct to the top using the left arête and crimps/pockets on the face, keeping left at all times for the full tick. (The fourth bolt has been removed by persons unknown. The first ascentionist had become aware that this bolt was badly positioned and had resolved to rectify the situation - sadly this may not now be possible. If the person concerned felt so strongly about it why not reposition the bolt and remove the original bolt? - Rob Kennard)

I could not finish the last move as I was on lead and a bit scared of falling over the arÍte.

2nd go. Fell on the very last move the slap for the top. Different moves to what you normally get at Winspit. Defiantly harder than 6b

Bolts seemed fine now, better and more independant route than it looks! Found this tough on the onsight, easy R/P. Maybe 6c?

riff156 - Lead β - 18/Aug/13 with Jo Smith

Awesome route. Can see how some people think its 6c as it felt like that first time because I did it wrong. Use the right technique and its def a 6b
Rokmunky - Lead rpt - 18/Aug/13 with Paul Jackson

Found it very hard for a 6b, more likely to be 6c

TRed to remember sequence, then led clean.
Monkey_Alan - Lead rpt - 21/May/13 with Darrell Gibson, Viskii Chicu

The sequence I though I was going to use did not work for me (my partner has a longer reach). In the end I had to workout my own sequence making several intermediate moves.

Hidden - TR dog - 16/May/13

Worked out top move. Fourth bolt has been replaced, and an extra loweroff bolt added.
Monkey_Alan - TR - 16/May/13 with Darrell Gibson, Viskii Chicu

Bit odd in places, but have worked out top sequence now. Not sure where the "mystery" crimps are? Arete and crack seems to be the options. Will lead next time.
gibsond - TR dog - 16/May/13 with Viorel Chicu, Alan Blanchflower

Goes at about 6c go-ey finishing move. would have climbed it if some idiot had not angle grinded of the staple on the crux and not mark the route as a no go. i could have taken a nasty fall if i had not notice the missing bolt, and thought better of going for the move. the belay bolt are no good either if you had cut them off too would have helped to warn peaple off (yes i do know who the vigilante with the battary grinder is)

debbie roberts - 2nd - 25/Apr/13 with Marti999

Def more like 6c. great couple of moves at the top.
Luxulyan - Lead dog - 21/Apr/13 with Dan Browne

Was thinking this would be a bag 'o' **** shoe-horned in there but once you understand the moves it's actually a nice little climb! 6b is way off the mark though. More like 6b+, possibly an easy 6c.
Sami Mandeel - Lead rpt - 19/Apr/13 with el_monty

The route is surprisingly good and technical. Shame about the 4th bolt placement, krab snapper!
el_monty - Lead RP - 19/Apr/13 with Sami

balancy top moves, more like 6c.
AlexD - TR dog - 17/Apr/13 with Sophie

4th bolt can open the carabiner, use a threaded sling instead of quickdraw for both the 4th bolt and the lower off.
Sophie Nunn - Lead dnf - 16/Apr/13 with Alex

Sophie Nunn - TR dog - 16/Apr/13 with Alex

Tried this today but didn't really understand the top and the lower off and the 4th bolts are placed in the wrong place and could be a crab breaker if fallen on to.
