First 6b lead outdoors... worked the route once, tried to jam mid way up but a layback worked best for me.

wjcdean 20/Jan Lead dnf

got half way, past the fingerlock but couldnt figure out the next bit, strayed too far right onto the 6a and gave up. need to come back for this one now that adam has done it and given me the beta. great route

julesmckim 27/Dec/16 Lead O/S

Excellent steep climbing. Middle section was wet which added to the drama. Layback moves off a slimy sidepull but with big feet, jamming above, great stuff!

It's been a while since I've been stumped on a 6b, got a bit fixated with with crack, realised you can work round it a lot without having to finger jam, really cool route though!

Can't jam! Did second try by dynoing for the good hold at the top of the crack. Tried too section again in good form but still struggled.
