I'd recommend bringing a bouldering mat for the start!(doesn't make it any easier though)

Blind start with horribly polished feet. Easier if you use the bad foot holds.

The start is tricky, polished and potentially dangerous. I led and it felt okay but this climb started our age old discussion about if/when it's acceptable to use the clipstick!

The whole difficulty of the route is compressed into the first two moves which are desperate!

as expected, hard to start as most of the climbs on this section, very easy after. first move def more like 6b (if not more) but overall I guess 6a+ is fair considering the upper section's ease. clip stick is a good idea to protect the start

Couldn't hold the grip for the first move. No fookin way was that 6a+. Technicality alone is 6b+. Rest of it is easy 6a. Needs regrading before someone gets hurt.

Looked at the start for bloomin ages and decided I wasn't up for the lead. Nick went for it instead .. I seconded. Very glad that I backed off cos it was nuts for a 6a+. Rest of route easy 6a. So .. not a very consistent route.
