An easier way up the slab, but still thin and high. It is f7A+ if you gain the flakes direct (without the pockets and side-pulls out right).

classic grit.....E1 6a always has been always will be, learn to climb!

i agree. an exercise in pain tolerance more than anything.

Ridiculously hard without the arete or boulder to the right. Having warmed up flashing Sleepwalker then Daydreamer, I couldn't come close to this despite dozens of efforts in good conditions. If this is English 6a, Satin is English 5b.

The boulder and arete are definitely out.

Fiend - dodgy sequence maybe?
Kieran - 04/Mar/09

Yes it was. I was trying super-direct (which I've heard is closer to English 6c), rather than coming in slightly from the right using the better holds. E2 6b in the definitive guide IIRC.

Lost a pebble (the 'juggy' one up and left) a couple of years ago and is now slightly harder. Doesn't climb as nicely, is more like 6b than 6a (though it was always on the cusp), but still a great problem.
