Never 6b! I agree the difficulties are in the lower half but this is closer to 6c, maybe a reach would help here and there but I'm not sure as it is all in the feet. Either way its excellent, thin, sustained, technical and well bolted.

Hard start and sustained for a whilt because of very tenuous feet. Felt more on a par with some 6c's i've lead but overall 6b+ prob fair

Linked the moves on top rope, Redpoint next time. Seems hard for a 6b.
Luke Owens - TR dog - 29/Sep/11 with Justin Finlay

Lovely delicate balancy climbing which is quite steady if you can stand on next to nothing!

2 falls (on the same move) cos I used a side-pull too low down. This after I managed the hard starting section. Too knackered for a 2nd RP, dang.

Had 1 rest after secoond bolt found it hard to figure out where the route went. Best sports route i've done at trevor. Not 6b at least 6b+ alot harder than all other 6b's i've done here and i've done alot of them.

The start is very sustained and pushy with easier but still interesting climbing above the fourth bolt. Well worth seeking out.
lrandall - Lead O/S - 13/Mar/11 with Dave Anderson

6c/+ ? Even better than Traction Control.
Chubbard - Lead dog - 23/Feb/11 with C Godfrey

very nice once you figure out the moves between 2nd and 3rd bolt, good rest afterwards..unfortunately foot slipped on first redpoint and did not have time to try again

Full-on start which doesn't relent until you get the first good hold. 6b+.
DrGav - Lead O/S - 21/Aug/09 with Dave

Tough start on weak, polished and smeary holds, eventually easing to less desperate climbing. Popped off the beginning several times.
David Martin - Lead dog - 21/Aug/09 with DrGav

6b+ about right for this - tough start - but really doesnt feel that nice/safe at the start with polished/smeary footholds. fine once you get going.

This was a very hard climb for me, as I found the holds rubbish and generally slippy, and it took time to get. It may be that I'm not very good at this style of climb, but I found the 6c near it much easier

Well 'ard! Clean (just) on second attempt.

Last climb of the day - fell a couple of times on the first section (which was hard at the grade). Got all the moves wired in the end but didn't have time for the red-point.
