2005 rockfax guide gives this 6b and it felt harder than that. Didn't use woodwork but fell using a sequence on small holds instead of using the good ones to the left

upgraded to 6c in new book. It is definitely not a 6b. Rockfax book full of errors on grades at this crag. Had to pull up of a quickdraw to pass the crux.

Failed on the on-sight without using the stump. Got it next try, using the stump this time. Still felt pretty solid at the grade.

starts to get very hard after the tufa, but what did i expect for a 6b...oh and apparently the tree and stump are in at the grade..

bpmclimb 21/Feb/09 Lead O/S

6b seemed about right to me FWIW.

Overhung - sat on gear. Used tree to get to the top. Of the three 6Bs I've done on this sector this was the most difficult (becuase of the strength required).
