βeta: 6b+ seems about right to me... I hung below the crux for a few minutes, then ran to the top. Not a particularly hard move, assuming you're happy with bolts!

βeta: Pretty easy for 6b+ I thought. You don't have to be mega strong for the crux, you just need to get your feet and bodyweight in the right position.

βeta: No, I'm with Ben on this one. Felt easy for the grade... A really good route though, should have a star.

Tall Gecko Hands 17 Jun, 2016 Lead dog The section before the brick wall is dry even when it's raining, so it was a good route to do when it was pissing down. The move after the massive undercling is actually quite hard : I had to dyno to the shelf.

Tall Gecko Hands 13 Jun, 2016 Lead dog The flake section gave nice climbing. The last bolt is in a brick, which is not very reassuring. You can use a brick as a handhold, I found that to be an interesting curiosity !
