Tough one - not sure if going to the right was the end, but it didn't make it easy!

6b in the Rockfax, and I'm taking that given that I finished directly.

Where did 6a come from? 6b in Rockfax and that is the grade,Harder if you do the top moves direct but if you move right to finish on the next route it maybe 6a+!

Fell off when hold broke, lowered off and started again. Went direct through finish, would be easier going right slightly.

Wet over top bulge so finished to right. Direct looked as if it would be tough for 6a.

Found it very hard for 6a. Is it me? Felt more like 6b! Difficult start and ending. Rock is better quality than those to the left.
