Pinged off the lower bit first go. Typical Avon style climbing: intricate and completely unobvious. Felt hard for 6c, but I made a bit of a pigs ear of it.
Alex Winter - Lead RP - 29/Jul/15 with Pauline, Steve, and Liam

Did the sport version. 2 lead dogs, 1st bolt to bolt resting then 2nd with a long link up. Seemed hard for the grade compared to the other 6cs

6c+ in the guide. felt tough even on the T/R.

guy xavier percival - Lead O/S - 10/Oct/14 with paul

Finishing left at the top - supposedly only F6c, not easy still and very pumpy altogether.
pheotleyr - Lead RP - 31/Jul/14 with Peter Milner

Climbed as sport 6C+, grabbed chains at top...
Greg Pittam - Lead O/S - 31/Jul/14 with Emma

Two hard sections. Good climbing. The slightly eliminate crux at the end is a bit annoying, avoiding it on the left seems more natural.
pheotleyr - Lead dog - 30/Jul/14 with Peter Milner

Clean top-rope after a dogged lead, avoiding the top crux on the left, which supposedly warrants 6c only.

Sport climb now. Manage to not do any of the 3 different finishes and and go directly up following Manoir de Kerlut to its bolted belay. Think my way made it 6b+/6c?

This is now retrobolted and given 6c+ but its a tad harder than that. Had to grab the crab at the anchors because there's not much else to hold onto. A lot of very insecure climbing.

So tricky at this grade.
J1_TOV - Lead RP - 05/May/14

This had just been retro bolted 2 mins before - finished up the top wall of exhumation. Needs a spoonful of cement or a bit of traffic to harden up, otherwise some great 6c/6c+ climbing
