The best line on the slab. Excellent, thin slab climbing with the crux coming just as the wall steepens up. E3 6a before being bolted.

A pleasant route but no where near 6b+. Ave grade on votes is 6b+ so I guess I am in the minority.

Avoided deviation too far R this time, despite cold fingers.

Very nice route, good slab climbing, good rock, not much not to like. Not sure the bolted climb can follow truly the old trad route as climbing felt English 5b/c the whole way, not sure I found a English 6a move anywhere.

Fell once when my foot slipped going up for the last bolt and easy ground - annoyingly this was after I'd done the crux! Still counting it as an on-sight though. ;)

Seemed harder this time - but having a bad cold can't help. Kept well R of bolts at crux, avoiding thinnest move.

Excellent route, by far the best route of the crag and the only route that we did that feels like an independant line. Excellent friction moves, technical but never desperate.
