Takes the centre of the face, right of Zoom. Use the creaky flake to gain the break, traverse left and then make the move up (crux) to crimps and top.

3rd go or something. Was surprised to find the penultimate hold was much worse than it first appeared.

Third go, Bang on E3 6a I reckon, excellent hard safe climbing.

Nice... finally a soft touch at sliptones. E2 5c? Might feel harder if you don't use your head and miss the step left before final wall.
Jon Read - Lead O/S - 03/May/10 with andi turner

Dogged it on a TR too - can normally climb 6a ok though. Rockfax is probably right at 6b.
