F6b+ish. Didnt think there was any 6a, but a fair bit of 5c. Upper corner still nice and technical. Wet and raining.

No harder than Pocket City or rather Pocket City is no easier than this (harder I'd say). Anyway, very good indeed, quite physical initially. Thought line in NWR and description didn't match: the stuck on blob is well up and left of sloping shelf (that I traversed right on); medium cam useful for this bit (size .5 BD cam was perfect).
