Opt Out*** 6b
Very hard to get off the ground. Now retrobolted and straightened out. Start below the left edge of an overlap at 4m. Gain an incut hold just over the overlap and pull through to a rest. Continue on excellent rock to an abseil station above.

Had to try the first move twice, and with more vigour! Some really good rock after. Very nice.

I'm 6ft 1, and very weak, and I can't do starts like this - at all! No chance... nice climbing above tho, which meant the misery at the start was worth it.
