βeta: HARPUR HILL 28 MARCH 2019 - BREAKFAST AT SAFEWAYS 6B I'm not sure if I started to climb too much to the side, I do not know if I climbed according to the guide. For the first time in my life I've climbed outside in the UK, previously only indoor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7TwChbrelU&t=860s

βeta: How many routes are here? Is it just one (with a big move left to reach the third bolt) or two, one with a bold start and the other a bold top?!

ChrisClark1 28 Mar Lead G/U Nearly onsight! Took a fall on the awkward start before the bolt. Great technical route throughout though. Midway ledge is perfectly placed to spend the next few minutes where on earth to place your feet. Got this section first time thankfully!

TomatoPro 18 Sep, 2018 Lead RP Felt really very hard for 6b. Not much easier at all than the 6c+ slab in the upper tier at Horseshoe, 6b+/c? Took a couple of goes getting off the ground then clawed up the rest
