Rockfax Description
The centre of the wall left of the big corner. Originally it was climbed direct, but now holds on the right are used. At least 6a+ if you go direct. The bolts to the left are the decommissioned The Lithuanian to the Left, 6b originally climbed as an E3. © Rockfax

βeta: Climbed the left variation without using any of the crack or flakes on the right. Took a huge hold off just below the good left flakey sidepull just short of halfway up. Left variation definitely much harder than 6a (possibly harder again now, sorry!)

βeta: pulled large hold off when clipping last bolt, and took a massive fall, wooo to air time :)

βeta: Second time I've done it and it seems a bit harder than 6a (unless you wander right, almost into 'Sumo' territory) at the crux. Once you're into the flakes and side pulls it's a laugh.

βeta: Did the Austin Powers variation to avoid the holds on the right, quite sustained climbing

βeta: excellent moves on great holds that keep coming. 6a is fair, but it felt very intimidating to me, go for it and the holds all appear. Nice.

βeta: Tried the direct version after doing the original route. It may be something to do with the way the route has 'weathered' up but just getting onto the direct version now seems very artificial especially with the new route to the left. Actually starting up Austin Powers and then moving right into Texan might provide a reasonable version of the direct on Texan.
