The Power of the Dark Side*** E8 6b
[Me on Power of the Dark Side, 4 kb]Climbs the bow-shaped arête using a series of good holds on its left side that are difficult to see from below. Overhanging to half-height with strangely insecure and powerful moves with no protection above an apalling landing.

Great route. Climbed with 3 pads, but felt really scary and the climbing was pretty sustained. Hard E7/bottom end E8. Hard 6b, you'd have to have a fair few pads to highball this thing!

Awesome route. Done with a few pads. hard crux. Felt like steady E7? Pads or not if you drop the top you're f***ed!
