Tried this a year ago and got spat off numerous times at the top, but I finally got it and would personally give it a 6b+

1 of my all time best climbs! took some massive falls from above the clip as it gets very pumpy getting over that lip, just when you think its over BAM! theres no visible holds and your left stroking the rock for a hold while mega pumped ^_^ next time its mine!

Bottled the last move. Rested on rope whilst I worked it out. Still feels hard when pumped.

Fell off this years ago. Hard to grade but not harder than 6b really.

Would make a top quality 6a climb if the anchor was 2 feet lower. Last move is unproportionately more difficult than the rest of the route.

Think i've done this before.....not sure it's 6c, the top move is steady if you use your feet.

Last two feet of climbing well out of proportion in terms of difficulty. A hard on-sight. Given F6c in the CC definitive guide.

Brilliant climb, it's got everything! Save something for the end - the hard finish cost me the Onsight!
