Tired at the end of the day, couldn't work out the crux. Didn't seem like 6a+ to me!

Beautiful line and really good fun. Disagree with "low in the grade". Was very happy to clip 2nd bolt - felt very tenuous. Then some lovely bridging, and a tricky crux which took several dogs to commit to due to poor holds above. Once I committed to edging feet high up the corner and finally stepped up I found a very welcome jug to clip from. Then very enjoyable (still committing) to top. Loved it but dogged the crap out of it. First outdoor 6a+ but would love to get it clean

2nd go. Tricky near the top, but great climbing. Would say 6a+ is about right given the stiff nature of this crag.

Nick Sherring 22/Nov/13 Lead dog

Energy slump from 5 days climbing, aagh! Would otherwise be a very good trad style climb. Agree with other comments this is closer to 6b, not sure what the easy for the grade 6a+ is about.

Low in the grade! Nonsense. Couldn't find a useable hold at the crux before my left foot slipped off the smear. Easier when I'd found the hold on the left but still no pushover.

Some great moves, and a hard crux. I don't understand how an E3 5c translates into an easy 6a+ ...it's actually pretty stiff.

The comment in the guide about it being "low in the grade" is nonsense. True it's only a few hard moves with decent rests in between, but it's quite intimidating and i found it very pumpy. Good route though!
