Liked this a lot. Hard move at the third bolt for me, then have to have faith that the holds will come, as you move above it. Tricky move over the final bulge as well.

Very good. Only 4 bolts though. 3 on the techy flowstone blobs make them well protected, but then there's a run-out 6a-ish section to the final overlap. The bolt on the lip is a bit scary to get to (good to use a slightly longer draw to make it hang clear of the rock), but protects well the hard 6c moves leading to the hanging chains.

This is the crag for sending 6cs! Don't hang about long on the overhang, go right then back left, and bring a long Quickdraw or sling for the last bolt (hidden just above the roof) so the gate doesn't open.

The move after the overlap is still hard, and it still needs a bolt below the overlap to prevent disaster in the event of a failure of the final bolt or a clipping error. Any volunteers to make this route safe?

Tried to go direct through the overlap. Detouring left like it shows in the guidebook is the correct way. Forgot this was 6C and tried to do it as a warm-up. Not clever.
