Tricky clipping the last bolt before the moves left.

Felt more like a 6a to me. A couple of bold moves on crimps. The traverse to the anchor bolts was ok but the anchor station wasn't the easiest to work with.

I agree with the 6a grading. A bit tricky moving across at the top but not too bad. It would have been a different story on lead!

Six months with no climbs and this is stiff for the grade - plus various other excuses!

Pulled a big flake off just below 3rd bolt. Probably not made it any easier I'm afraid.
