This climb is in 13 logbooks, and on 5 wishlists.
Moves done.. Only slightly harder than menai vice move imo.
Its daft to give it a sport grade.
E6 7a seems just and better describes the character. If you call it an 8a people will just say it needs more bolts and totally miss the point.
Ditto for heading the shot.

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

Top-roped clean today, very nearly got it on the lead as well....fingers slipping off the finishing jug. Will hopefully get the red point sometime soon.

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).
