A classic Stanage E4s giving a bold outing. From the bottom right-hand corner of the face, climb a tiny groove to a poor rest, swing left and pull up with difficulty (a small cam in the base of the flake is hard to place) then make the crucial layback/stretch to reach the deep horizontal break. Move right and use a good pocket to gain the easier final wall.
never seen 6a in its life. Is a solid 5c move with slightly tricky gear, but never 6a
I seem to remember getting a couple of good small rocks, rather than a small friend, in the bottom of the flake when I did it, although it's a fair few years ago now!
How on earth is the starting section not 6a? It's certainly harder than plenty of other grit 6a moves (unless you're off using the crack on the right or something?).
