A hard first clip, desperate moves past the bolt and sustained, thin climbing make this one memorable.

Scary first bolt and desperate to pass it, much harder than it's neighbour Thalia

Agreed, no way can this be the same grade as Thalia. Hard and scary.

May be nice to use a clip stick on the first bolt as a fall would be nasty here. Beautiful slab climbing with delicate moves.

Those without a clip stick can clip the 1st bolt on Thalia first (if you're a wimp like me). Tough move past the 1st proper bolt, but a great route - 2 stars.

It's a one move wonder - but it is a wonderful move! Especially if you like powerful balancy rock-overs!!

'kin hard!
No way is this only 6b+ and no way the same grade as Thalia.
Getting to the first bolt is nowhere near the hardest bit.

I agree with this being upgraded to 6c, it's hard and scary. I had a brown trouser moment while stretching to clip the 2nd bolt, I was only just able to clip it. But I agree with some of the other comments it is a lovely route
