Cystitis by Proxy*** E6 6b
[Moments before the lob: Dan Honeyman on Cystitis By Proxy, E5 6b, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
A tricky pitch that is bolder since the RP placements have blown out! It can be split at the flakes/ledges at half-height. Start by some ledges just before the scree, below a vague rib. Ascend the rib to a shattered crack, get in as much gear as possible because there isn't much more! Carry on up the shattered crack until the climbing gets hard and a foothold can be seen out left. Make a very committing move left onto the foothold, after which good holds lead to the broken ledges. Take the right-hand line of two bolts, passing the second via a tricky move - to get out of the letter-box provides the crux. Above, easier but bold climbing leads up and right to the top. © ROCKFAX

Been worrying about trying this for years, sky hooks calmed me down but not by much. The best E5 on the slab!
