Coronary Country (original start)*** E6 6b
[Dave onsighting Coronary County, 2 kb]35m.

Rockfax Description
A high grade testpiece of the Culm Coast that combines some technical and fingery climbing in its mid-section, with a tiring and not overly-geared upper wall. Start at a left-trending crack which leads to the good spike runner low on Fay.
32m. Gain the spike on Fay and follow the wall on the right to another diagonal break. Move left along the break for 3m to below a blank wall with pegs in it. Hard climbing to and past the pegs gains a quartz break. Move up to another break and follow this left a little way before heading up the final wall to the top. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Another fine wall climb with great climbing and a sequency crux by the pegs. The fixed gear can be backed up with wires but the route is still a bold undertaking. High in the grade. Incorrectly described in West Country Climbs! The original line climbs up at the first spike NOT the second (Fay)spike.

Ground-up. Tried on the Monday with the RF start, got pumped and useless by top peg (looks shit). Lowered off. Returned on Wednesday after a tiring days bouldering and assault coursing, but armed with knowledge of this start. Went ok this time, tricky, reachy crux with a lot of hard climbing (sustained 5c/6a) either side.

Attempted - three long falls onto top peg. High point reaching better holds and a nut slot after hard thin sequqnce on side pulls. Too hot!
