Wasn't sure on the route at the top so went to the left which didn't really feel like a 6a.
jayyaj - Lead O/S - 06/Aug/13 with Alex Herbert

I think the idea is to go straight up over the slabby bit is tricky. Moving left to the corner is easier but moving back out to traverse across to the lower off is pretty bold.

Thin and good near top, but hardly merits 6a. But if if was three times as long on such a delicate slab, would be 6a+! 5+ overall I'd say.
