Steep committing laybacky move on the direct start. Hard moves higher up with the pocket and some wide bridging. Close to being 6c

Hard to read, tried going the wrong way. Easy enough when you work it out

Dogged because my partner started up a different route and backed off. To clean the draws i had to climb up then down then finished on Fone Booth Connection, would like to return and do ground up

really struggled on two sections and had to hang on rope. first section probably easier once you know the sequence, second section just thin on decent holds. one for me to work!

Did the direct 6c start & cruised the crux so very frustrated to have an uncoordinated slip from a perfectly comfortable position in between those two hard sections

Thin moves based around two progressively smaller pockets and crimps. Clipping slightly dangerously off the first pocket was touch and go then the climbing safely past the second became touch and go. A crux of two halves if you like

screwed up crux sequence- went left and ended up smearing with feet, doesnt work on limestone :)... easy when figured out the move - missed the crucial pocket :)
