Smart but tricky but shortlived climbing. Hard 6b tops.

Lovely technical climbing. Would go with the consensus and say 6b+.

Found the start very technical. Then bottled at the crux. Annoying. Will try redpoint next time, but may lace it first via the 5 next door, as the higher crux is *very* thin... & above a bolt. 6c in my guide, would suggest 6b+.
