Flew up this with a tight rope through the crux lower section and got persuaded to think about headpointing the route. Tried climbing it with a slack rope and I couldn't quite make the moves work, felt like more of a confidence thing. Landing is pretty good and a bomber nut protects the hard move.

Lower Crux: 5c. Care needed to get the hand sequence correct so that the left hand can get the nice crimp.
Upper wall: 5b.

Although the crux is low and reasonably well protected (Maybe hard 5c or easy 6a) the upper part of the route is bold and still technically about 5b in places. I think it felt very bold for E1 5c/6a.
Ceridwen - Lead RP - 26/May/12 with Pete Milner
good route climbed up put the gear in downclimbed then finished the route off. Esay 6a more like 5c
