Possibly a bit less "snappy" Now as I think the flake has Broken. Might actually be E6 now, and 6b!

Great climbing, seemed like a scary last slap to the break more run out than I was expecting.

Got abit psyched out of going for the flash by speedy scrittling everywhere on the abb rope. So did a quick headpunt instead. Really cool, not sure it is 'the best crux sequence on grit' as the grit list says but it is still very good.

Such a great climb!

Sweet grit climbing! No really desperate moves once you know where the holds are. Potentially quite a big (but safe) fall from the last hard move to reach the good holds. Def worth comin back for.

Ground up/no beta. Fell off this GU in early 2006. End of the Affair for the E6 leader?
