Barry Manilow*** f7A / V6
[Stevie on Barry Manilow, 3 kb]Just right of QED and the first arete you get to from the path.
A Classic and well worth its 3 Stars.
SS on an incut hold under the bulge work up to the jugs of builders butt. Move up and left to a great mantle struggle over the Bulge{ throwing a heel helps}.
Standing start goes about 6b+/6c.
Purests finish this climb without the final big quarts hold.

Not too bad when you're used to Dartmoor mantels! The rain made the top slab quite spicy.

Got the heel up for the first time ever in my morning session and was so psyched I had to go back in the evening in cooler, perfect friction conditions to thrutch my way to an almost top-out a number of times. This is going down soon.
