[Andy Elliot on This Won't Hurt, Llanymynech, 2 kb]Top-class wall climbing up the light-coloured right-hand side of the wall which is sustained and well protected. Fingery moves up the wall above the trees (bolt) gain breaks and a long narrow vegetated ledge. Make a technical move past a bolt to more horizontal breaks and go up slightly right to a flake. Move left and up, past another bolt, to a peg. Step up and rightwards to the arete and then gain the top up its left-hand side. Finishing directly up the wall from the final peg is E6 6b. © ROCKFAX

some hard moves to start but then got easier to a monster rest then it gets hard. So chuffed to flash this, the clips were in which im glad of as I would have struggled to put them in on the lead. 6c+/7a? dont know I'll take either.

7a - Quality climb! One of the best I've been on. Awesome crux move. Pretty run out higher up!

Short on time so top roped. 7a in old guide and 7a in my book too! Took a few shots on bottom sequence. Rest was stamina fest but quality. Impressed with Helens go on it too.

Lead then top roped 3 more times for stamina training. On the lead stepped left where the 2nd old bolt used to be, but there is a way fo doing the move straight that isnt that bad wich i did on the other goes.also looked at the direct direct finish. i presume the direct finish mentioned in the guide is the one that still goes slightly right as straight up would be at least hard eng 6c.

Pumpy for first time on the wall of the year. Just about hung in there though. My shoes kept coming off too which wasnt making it any easier. Such a cool wall.

Wimped out and pulled on one of the draws to make the clip by the grotty, slopey ledge high up, but otherwise clean.
