As many others seem to have done, clipped the Traction Control chains after a balancey step up.

Finished up traction control by accident, as it started throwing it down with rain! Ran away to the boardroom.

Clipped Traction Control chains. Mad tricky balance move required different shoes!! Glad to see its graded harder than the 5 I saw it given. Crux was at the very end and much harder than 5/6a

Really hard crux and the first time I've fallen due to disco leg of epic proportions. Lowered back to the start of the crux and did it second go thanks to some wild slapping! Absolutely awesome route and one to go back and do clean some time.
