Sore back slackened off just enough to allow a clean TR ascent of this after a tough time trying to lead Born Again. (Watch out for toaster size loose block a few moves from the top.)

Sadly not the full 6c tick; I think you have to stay very close to the bolt line going past the 1st and 2nd bolts, otherwise probably 6b even though all bolts could be reached at all times

Got on it thinking it was a 6a (no guide) but after pulling through the crux moves realised it definitely wasn't ... great climbing on the lower part of the route.

At least 6c if you stick to the rib and don't use the HVS.

Shaw Brown 01/Jun/09 Lead

Better if you finish up Fistfull of Steroids. Plus stepping a bit left at the start makes the route more consistant.
