A pleasant, open groove. Super-technical and imaginative moves on the crux. High in the grade, and a touch run-out.

A short but very technical crux thats possibly English 6a for the short.

not too sure about that, im pretty short+i didnt find any moves anywhere near english 6a. but however i did find the seagull nest about half way up just to the left quite disturbing. would have backed down had i not been quite a long way above the last bolt by the time i noticed them staring at me. not one for the nesting season me thinks!

Super technical and imaginative move and the route name says it all, not 6a but probably 5b/c wouldnt be far wrong. Nice climbing, though a tricky crux for the grade.

"a tricky crux for the grade" Exactly!

Getting established in the groove is very exciting! 6b+...
