Rockfax Description
This good line up the centre of the wall is spoilt by some sharp rock and lichen. Start at the 3m flake-crack as for Kraken.
Start up the stiff layback and climb direct on increasingly sharp edges to a step left at the fifth bolt. © Rockfax

Worked this last time but didn't manage to lead, managed it 1st RP today after putting the clips in. Actually thought I was on Kraken so bit of a surprise when I realised it was this. Not really 6c+, felt more like 6c.

Hard to read. Given the quality though and position of route its difficult to judge if its actually 6c+. Still good climbing though.

Holds seem fine and not too sharp. Climbed in a direct line following the bottom bolts. Didn't quite step right at the top and passed the bolt on the left. Felt 6c that way. Hard to read but would be ok on rp. Opted to try chepito instead and save skin.
