The belay is a bit too low, so top-out first to get the tick. Only 6a if not climbed past the belay.

could do with a belay bolt now that you have to climb out above the landslide? falling off before the first bolt would currently be a bit nasty

I agree - why don't you put one in Toby?

thats a nasty top move past the belay, sod the 6b tick !! much harder than the rest of it.

What this area needs is either the fire brigade with high pressure hoses or abouit 50 climbers with spades. The routes could be made 20-30ft longer and leave a good belay ledge at the bottom ( of course it would need a bit of rebolting and possibly regrading). This isnt as stupid as it sounds, we did the same thing to Coal measure crag at Anglezarke a few years ago.

I thought this route was really nice until I clipped the peg and went for the final moves up to and past the lower off - much harder move than you would expect for a 6b route. Also dont look down until you have clipped the first bolt!

the previous comments fail to understand the
routes history, first done with the one peg to
a clean top out. The current route has none of the aura of the original, which fealt as bold as many grit E5's

Straightforward up to the peg, desperate - for me at least - going past it. The first bolt seems high but the climbing steady.

fairplay to anyone that led this pre-bolts! That top move is fierce. I've not found a stopper move like this on any other 6b to date. Wouldn't have been out of place on a far harder graded route...

Double bolt belay added.
