Good route, unusual style of moves for Horseshoe

Various desperate bits, harder than kalymnos 7a so too hard for me!

morganator 09/Aug/17 Lead O/S

This is a tough 6c now, maybe 6c+. Previously comments say lots of loose rock. Well it's all solid now as it's all come off, so it's a different route, different grade. I struggled to onsight it, then did the 6c immediately to its R which I found much easier and took half the time

Pulled off a big flake at the start on the right side. Better starting left of first bolt. Route felt a bit hard at the grade...maybe some holds are missing!! Some nice moves along the vertical vein.

Not worth a star but not too bad a route. Very hard for 6b+. More like 6c. Worth doing.

Started sleeting on me on lead, dogged to top then top roped using wet holds.

Again struggled. Possibly this time due to pulling off a side-pull halfway up but def more hard parts as well. Need to come back and get this clean still - hate this route!

Extremely poor route. 3rd bolt in shattered rock. Worth no stars.

Messed up the second crux at the break. On second attempt i crimped on the triangular pinch under the first bolt and split the end of the finger when feet slipped. Sorry about the blood.

Scary first clip, rest is easy if not pre-pumped from the beginning.

Moves on the bulge mid way and the top crux worked then sent. With a little Beta from Mick.

went ok after working out the top crux.

All rather chossy, dangerous and generally uninspiring, despite its slightly aesthetic appearance. There's a hard bit somewhere near the middle!

One hard move high up - without a bit of advice from below from Gary Gibson I might not have got the move, easy when you know how!
