The fingery grey pillar on the far left, above the steps. It eases with height but the previous grade of 5 caught a few folks out. © Rockfax

Backed off lead, but struggled even with TR - 6b, surely. Phil led, not fazed by absence of footholds at crux.

Really hard, even for a 6a. I think you're supposed to go right through the little cavelike feature so the draws are on your left, but we had to use the arete to get up to the ledge. Fun, but difficult!

balancy, poor line; crux in middle; seems to merge with route to R at top

Pumpy, 6a+ !!!! don't miss the vital finger pocket as desperation sets in. great climbing up through the large crack system above the crux.

Sat on the rope, hugged the tree. Pumpy

i agree this is way harder than 5, maybe even 6a+

Definitely harder than a 5

Infamous as "the 5 round the corner". In 2 weeks we climbed quite a few 6a's and 6b's that were easier than 'the 5 round the corner'!

Not really a 5, more like a 6a! Sustained and fingery with delicate moves

Very hard and sustained for a 5. Suspect largish block has fallen off where you may have been able to rest.
