The direct start straight past the bolt, not left of, not right of, straight past.

Tried the 6b start just failed

First move would be really dangerous on lead - no protection and a boulder field to land on...

Didn't realize the direct start was 6b so had to work the first move. Then followed Wayne up.

Very nice route, scary doing the direct start & clipping the 1st bolt

Did the 6b bit fine, but got tired at the top so had to rest.

Pre-clipped first bolt, but didn't weight the rope. Extreemly hard first clip for the grade, easier to climb past it than clip.

The start was easy enough to figure out, a good reach was useful though, and the holds were aparent. The top section, that looks like it's been plastered, was all about balance. I came slightly right for few better holds. One to be repeated cleanly some time.

Not sure if I did it quite right! Went just left of the bolt, still a hard move for 6b though! Pull on undercling, up left to a crimp on a bit of flint, stand up and really high reach to sloper, then even further to top of ledge. Found the rest really pumpy, but mainly because I have very poor stamina! Followed flake up to top, then out left slightly, over a bulge, and then the final tricky move. A gaston with left hand, high right foot, and rockover and reach to good hold! Lovely.

bottom tricky to work out, but really only 4 moves long. easy enough thereafter
