Hardest climb to date, god that was hard!!!

Tough few moves through the crux getting to the two finger pocket, found a left hand and then it's pulling on jugs through the bulge. Really nice after that although a few head flutters near the top. Pleased I kept persevering.

Did this as cool down but it was bloody hard for 6a+, especially the first half.

Agnes Philli, Elena Ktisti, Constantinos Charalambous (I climbed it but not freely, I fell once and then continued almost immediately).

Got my ass kicked on Route 66. Hard moves through the bulge.

A sandbag at 6a+ unless you like pulling on small sharp holds over a bulge or find the devious way to go round it

with Mark C

Steep for the grade! But mostly juggy.

An easy one to mess up, found a hold no one else had used and just kept going till over the bulge. Nice climbing but make sure you're warmed up before this one

with Mike
CharlieMack 09/Oct/16 Lead O/S

Definitely 6b. Did the 6c to warm up and just went to put the rope up for someone else, had to work out the moves for longer than the 6c.

Height an advantage through the bulge. The best hold was surprisingly not chalked up.

Tough at the bottom crux. Not one to warm up on.

Thought the initial bulging section was pretty go-ey for 6a+. Cool route.

Giles Davis 17/Apr/14 Lead dog

Ha, thought this was a terrible sand bag first go as I did not find some of the good pockets. There's still a hard move at the 4th bolt going from a poor crimp to a 2 finger pocket.

Giles Davis 17/Apr/14 Lead RP

Second go Redpoint. Very nice route.

This was really fun and quite stiff for 6a+. Getting over the bulge was the crux ... perhaps worth 6b?

Two rests! One at crux, at initial overhanging wall, the other further HP where I missed a straightforward sequence. Easy when I finally spotted it!
