[stretch Aki, 2 kb]Wonderful and frustrating slab climb. It has sadly been chipped recently. Still a great problem and still 6b if you don't use the chipped bit.

2nd go. With the chip and finishing the left way. Didn't realise the history of the problem/chip or I'd have tried the eliminate.

In the 'Grade 6 and above' book as a Font 6b, probably goes at around 5c-6a though, height dependent.

Yes Matt, you should work on your footwork! Quite easy now, there are a couple of small chips on the key foot holds.
