Round the Bend 6b
Fine climbing that has a teasing crux. Start as for Up the Junction, then break right over a bulge before tackling the slim groove. © ROCKFAX

Got suckered into trying Tim's drop-knee beta after watching him and Stef try it - didn't work for me and I fell off. Faffed about a little bit before spotting a high step and layback to the good hold - felt reasonably straightforward then. Bit of a one-move wonder but a good route anyway. The crux move is probably a tad harder than any move on Up The Junction, but nowhere near as sustained.

Steady except the crux which is nails for the grade, had to rest.

The crux was much much harder than 6b. I think someone shed a vital hold on it.

Don't think I found the hidden hold as the sequence I ended up using was certainly not 6b. Onsight thwarted!
