Pumpy, 6a+ !!!! don't miss the vital finger pocket as desperation sets in. great climbing up through the large crack system above the crux.

Definitely harder than a 5
Sinéad - Lead dog - Jan/11 with Niall Browne

Infamous as "the 5 round the corner". In 2 weeks we climbed quite a few 6a's and 6b's that were easier than 'the 5 round the corner'!

Not really a 5, more like a 6a! Sustained and fingery with delicate moves

Very hard and sustained for a 5. Suspect largish block has fallen off where you may have been able to rest.
krikoman - Lead O/S - 09/Oct/09 with Greg Childs

no way is this a grade 5, its desperate after the third bolt..
