Sustained and 6a traversing right? Humidity made it slightly more stressful than it needed to be.

a tremendous pitch! one of N Wales' best E4s. quite sustained and maybe just 6a in 1 or 2 places but no hard moves; the moves up the pillar are v cool. good but spaced gear (lots of v good threads) with some good shakeouts. a must do!
