βeta: Fun and easier with a Jump start. Cranking on good right hand to high left Gaston with a high foot seems the way, easy once second clip in. Font 6a+ more like!

andymorris17 7 Jul Lead dog Dyno for first move pretty fun. Crimp move with high feet into high LH gaston definitely feels harder than 6a+. Managed it in isolation but couldn't quite piece it all together as the last route of the day. Suggest belayer wears a helmet - lots of scree on ledge by anchor.

Martin Brierley 16 May, 2015 Lead dnf 6a+ my arse! I lost a lot of skin and nearly had it before I lost my footing and came within a cm of a ground fall. One big move off high feet and poor holds or a couple of poor moves on fingery holds with high feet. I might have to go back and have another look one day.

climbingrev 19 Feb, 2009 Lead dog Worked this - made all the moves, ground up, but not all together! Will come back. 1 move much harder than 6a+ now that jug pulled off, but this is the only difficulty. Top out lethal (wet, loose, shale)but bolts and final flake mean that it doesn't matter that you can't stand on anything without pushing it down onto your belayer!
