I thought I'd tried this before but it seems I hadn't. The start wasn't too bad but I thought there was one move mid way up the grove that was really hard for 6b. I possibly missed something.

Weakly hauled my way up to the layback/bridging bit, somehow became even more of a pansy and chickened out. One to come back to.

Got on this as no other warm up lines were available thinking it was only 6a+ Just about managed the cruxy start with very cold hands. Thought provoking move to a jug in the grove using a small foothold. Overall very good climb, would be better if that ledge wasn't there!

Made a meal of this. Came off at the start, then got above this and took at the second bolt. Nervy, not trusting my feet! Fine on the moves above the ledge, although took a while to commit to the move into the groove.

Bit of a dodgy start (hence the TR first attempt), but can be made easier with the right beta (go direct up towards the bolt and reach high for a right hand jug). Bit of a game of 2 halves with a crimpy technical start followed by a good rest on a ledge before a layback/bridging crack climb to the top. Bit stiff for the grade (maybe 6b+), but has a good rest.

Savage for the grade. Boulder start is hard unless your tall, then the upper groove has some tensiony layback moves and the lower off is a big stretch. No easier than 'New Saladin'.

Great route! As it says, initial moves are around a V2 boulder problem, took a couple of tries to work out, but when I actually set off it all went okay. Few big reaches, then a rest on a big ledge, had a sit down! The rest of the route is slightly technical bridging and laybacking, but none of it hard, just trying to fight the pump I had gotten from the initial section. Lovely route.

Just got told to climb it; so I did, with no idea about any of it except the start was hard. Top bolt made harder with lichen.
