It's a shame I did this before Steve as I'd like to try his (unconventional) sequence for the roof. I suspect the grade depends a lot on how much you decide to eliminate the groove on the right at the start.
Nick Russell - Lead rpt - 25/May/15 with Emily

Fell off trying to make the reach to the jug by the second bolt on my first go; juuuuust about made the stretch on my second. Really fun after I'd managed to get the jug, but wouldn't fancy the lead. I wouldn't be able to clip the second bolt from the ledge, and definitely wouldn't fancy that barely-possible reach without it clipped.

Nice little route, but the good moves are fairly short lived. Felt a fair bit easier that 6b+ but definitely worth a go.

Good route for photos. A few nice move's to half hight.

Thought this was 6a+ as per Gary Gibson online tope. Really think it is much closer to that grade. Amazing toe hook sequence there but the climbing is sadly short lived. Should have a star though as is super fun.

Bit eliminate. Gave up when the post crux ledge was a bit dirty to pull on to, should have kept it together and put my feet on (doh).

As ever route finding was the issue for me .. without the outright strengh to just thug my way up I had to use technique instead. This took time to figure out .. would probably do clean on repeat.

VERY easy to go off-route as i did...very polished handhold out right. would be cool if it wasn't so dirty, as the mantles consist of grovelling in mud at the moment :D
