Ghengis Khan*** 6c+
35m. Climbs the right hand side of the calcite wall. Start at the slabby rib leading to bulge at 5m. Stretch up this then delicately climb the wall above with a bit of weaving about to follow the best holds. You almost join "Tarus Bulba" at 2/3 height but move left to climb the wall on knobbly holds to a final flake and stretch right to the belay

Ok I take back my earlier ranting comments. 1st go red point today. Went straight through at the crux, just used a higher hold. Great route now that it was dry, some holds needed a brush as usual at Taffs Well.

simo - Lead rpt - 11/Sep/14 with Si

Finally worked out a move to get through the crux only to snap the hold off whilst practising the move :-/ Couldn't find another way through and it appears much harder than 6c+ now. Also, it's got 3* moves but the route is actually a bag of shit due to the crumbling muddy holds for both hands and feet. I'll give it another go though when it's dried out a bit and maybe change my mind. Ahhhh, I've just read the route description above, it says to move right and almost join Taurus Bulbus. If that's so then no wonder I found it desperate as I was trying to take that section straight on.

Great route, easier if you can reach the pocket at the start. Would have voted for F6b+ if it had been available...
