Rockfax Description
A direct line parallel to Philatus, but on smaller holds. Staying directly on line maintains the grade. Starting slightly left and moving right in the middle section makes things easier (E2 5c) but still worthwhile. © Rockfax

For the eliminate line F6c. I practiced first and gear, (two weeks ago). IMO gear ok, bold start but only to 3-4mtr, then good gear spaced to top. Fantastic wall climbing.

Had previously top roped, but no memory of the climbing.

Tom told me it was bold and hard, and was wrong on both counts. Slightly annoyed to have top roped as it is very flashable.
