Barbarossa*** E6 6b
[First ascent of Barbarossa, Gogarth Upper Tier, 2 kb]37m. Brilliant climbing up the centre of the wall. The demise of the peg has made the crux more serious but a ground fall can probably still be avoided with sharp belaying. After the crux the route blasts direct up the rest of the wall to two decaying pegs where a move right brings good holds and the top. Benefits from a good brushing first.

Ab inspected lower section. Succeeded on 3rd attempt after taking 2 falls from the crux. Brilliant route, felt E6 in this style but reckon would definitely be E7 for onsight.
