Watch out for the loose first bolt. Did it up finger tight (didnt have any tools). Will go down with a spanner next time I go to overshoot to check on it.

My first climb above 6a. I then went on to do a 6b and 6b+. Good evening for climbing. Hard start but once past that it is plain salling. One big step-up half way up but when you go for it there is the hand holds you need. MONSTER
