Dawlish - 17/Apr/14 with neil

Brilliant crux move (using good side pull and a small crimp do a very high rockover on good foothold to the left) and a commiting slap to gain second bolt.

Starting slightly from the right makes this a reasonable 6a+ and felt like this should be the way to do it. Not really worth a star in any case I thought though.

First bolt clip-sticked, but it's either can't do it (direct) or use 2 holds on the right (can do it). For me it's either 6a/+ or 6c/+ ... & I can't do the latter... :)

I didn't find this too taxing, judging by other comments in the log I may have started a little to the side? Not sure, I started bellow the bolt so good enough for me. I should imagine I could make it harder eliminating some holds :-)

Bobcat5060 - Lead O/S - 31/May/08 with Stu Gregory

No way this is a 6a route. To onsight the start (crux) is not obvious at all. The sequence up to the first break is quite strenous so rest of route, although easy, was a test of climbing while pumped. P.s. The old guide had the route down as E1 5c which, technically, does map across to a 6a route but I'd vote for it to be F6b if it was an option (as per the new guide).
