Lead with pre-placed quickdraws. Easy enough climbing up until the final headwall where things become trickier a no hands rest is do able and useful. Managed to get up to the lower off point and clipped a quickdraw in once the rope was clipped I managed to slip off as I readjusted myself to clip. But the headwall was fun enough that I didn't mind climbing back up to thread the rope through the lower off properly. Interesting route if it was all like the headwall it would be mega.

leeds_belle 09/Sep/12 Lead dog

I found this area of the crag very confusing since the routes are fairly close together. I actually started the route on the 6b to the right "Ye Old Naked Man Cafe". My mistake was to clip the first bolt for Victoria Hall and then the first bolt for Ye Old Naked Man cafe, but then I made the mistake of following the 6b line to the ledge (4 or 5 bolt) then rejoined the 6a. I was quite pumped by the top section and I needed to rest before making the move for the lower off. I can't really vote for this one since I didn't do the full 6a (or 6b) route.

jennifers87 09/Sep/12 Lead dog

Started of at the wrong point with this climb, attempted the 6b start a few times which tired me out. Once I worked out how to do the right route, found it a nice climb. Struggled a little at the top as I tried to use small holds when my hands/arms were knackered. Had to rest on the rope. Realised after watching Marc and Mike doing this route that you can use the arete to the left.

There is 1.5 metres of great proper limestone sport at the top of this route. It appears from the comments below that people fall off here, but it certainly isn't reachy. There's a collection of lovely 2-3 finger pockets to use. Use them, or alternatively, go to france, and get miles of this stuff without the horribly loose middle section
