[Straight up, or on the rocks? Gus on Demolition (E6 6a/b) at Sennen Cove, Cornwall, 3 kb]A pulse-enhancing and memorable pitch that features an extremely runout crux. Start just right of the arete below some thin cracks. 21m. Gain and climb the cracks to the first horizontal break. Move up the wall to a small flake from where a stiff rock-over gains a thin seam up to the left and the second break just above. Pull through the overhang and step right to finish up the steep prow on good holds. © ROCKFAX

Felt fine for 6a. The gear would save you from the crux, not the finishing crack. very tempted to get on the lead.
