Failed the lead, then practised on toprope. I seem to need the intermediate out left before going for the pocket.

Hardest move was over the bulge at the top. Did everything first time but got psyched out before the bulge and took a rest

A really nippy one-move wonder gaining the left hand pocket. If you're tall enough, the rest of the climb is pretty straightforward.

I could not get over the bulge at the top to the last clip.

Pleased to get this second go. The top section isn't easy to onsight...

Tried this route three years ago and dogged it. Got it first try today, so delighted. Hard top sequence.

Not what any woman under 5'5 wants! Big move from the good pocket to reach over the top. I'm at full reach and so stretched I can't see my foot! Should go next time but after 2 venues in a day I kind of lost the will to live!

Never yet managed this route. Not 6c, it's harder than the two 6c+ routes adjacent.

Agree with Sheppy, this is solid 6c+ and very good climbing. Sustained at the top. Apologies for pulling a pebble off on the layback below the bulge!

?Best route on the crag. solid 6c+ for the under 6 footers

Tried to lead this because ... well you might aswell .. lowered off at blank wall. Top-roped it afterwards with one rest working out the move at the pockets at the roof. Headed for right hand pocket first before switching hands, reachy otherwise, using undercut 2 finger pockety thing!

No idea how you're supposed to do the move to the pocket above the roof. Has a hold broken? The supposed crux from the pocket onwards was relatively straightforward.
