Clean up until the second bolt but then completely shut down by the crux. Think this is a bit beyond me at the moment, but maybe one day!

Real pleased to get this in a session. After a couple of hours on shunt figured out all the moves, crux is tricky to suss out. Cheers Tom n Jez for the belay and encouragement. F8a, bolts are where you need em

In an afternoon. Thought it was more like E7,7a (see this is the grade given rather than E6,7b given in the old guidebook). The dyno isn't the crux - the rocker before the dyno is...
