Start up the pillar to the break. The flowstone wall above has good moves. The right-hand finish is Glas Double, 6c+.

I think this deserves another bolt above the half-height break. For less than average height anyway. There is a right-hand variant called Glass Double at 7a.

Being only 5 foot 8 inches I would certainly agree with Gary - another bolt would be most welcome!
Otherwise enjoyable but rather open to variation on the lower part of the wall.

Quite bold and sustained. Don't know why this is 6b in the guide, 6b+ seems fair.

Runouts: there's quite a hazardous clip to get established on the wall, and although there are good wires in the break a bolt wouldn't go amiss here either. Not really a sport route as it is!

i agree re:the third clip (off the top of the pedestal) being a pokey one and that it should have an extra bolt to save a crash onto the ledge.
