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

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.

Great route but start through initial bulge is not obvious and hard for the grade

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