Thin finish. Went right at the last bolt, then back onto the face to the final jug

Hard start and bold finish - way harder for a 6a imo

Tried to finish up the centre of the face at the top, which seemed at least 6b+ , and took a pretty big whipper. Really no idea how this route can be graded 6a.

Sharp start. Gareth went right and accidentally finished on the 5+. Quite pleased about that as it was a non-sharp layback crack.

Went the wrong way (right) after the first clip so ended up starting again then doing it clean...

Footholds are a bit polished low down and handholds are fiercely abrasive, decent route though.

Finished on the left arete of the face which felt about right for the grade. Even on top rope I couldn't see any way up the centre of the face below about 7a. Nice route though.
