While the Cat's Away** E4 6a

Rockfax Description
35m. Excellent hard wall climbing but with only limited protection and some testing run-outs. Climb up to a peg in a very faint left-trending seam. Technical climbing past another peg, and not much other gear, gains a slim overlap. Easier climbing in the same style finishes this monster pitch. © ROCKFAX

Freezing fingers. Harder than I remembered. Reasonable gear when it's there but runnout between it. At the top I finished up the gap in the guide between the finish of Black B*stard and Black Wall original. Quite a hard finish like this. Probs makes it hard E4 overall.
