A highly regarded route. Straightforward moves leading to a nice finishing crack.

Good 'first' 6a+ to do, finish is easier than it looks.

Fairly straightforward, nice crack to finish.
Middle-ish 6a.

I agree with Jess, top moves looked tricky from below but were relatively straight forward. Very nice and a good 1st 6a+ to try. Worthy of a second star.

Enjoyed this one a lot. Good ledges, giving you huge amounts of time to think about it all, and a few harder top moves to make you feel like you've actually done something.

Again, finish is easier than it looks, but a fair bit harder (english 5b) than the rest of the route (possible 4c)!

Very reachy top.

Use the holds out right, Alcock.

Nice straight forward climbing to meet the crux at the top. Not too Dissimilar to the 5 next door both in character and grade!

Wonderful top moves on this - looks like they're going to be hard, but they're really straight forward. Excellent bolting means you're level with the bolt as you do the crux and then it's over. Loved it!
