On a rarely dry climb over at Burbage, ‘Mermaid V6/7A’. 

A classic short and powerful line, this was my first onsight of V6, I’ve flashed a few but this just felt 100% my style; Short powerful, overhanging. 

It makes your realise with climbing how much personal style helps and how some climbs are just ungradable, we jumped on West Side Story before this picture was taken and jesus, the lads that gave us some advice weren’t wrong; Completely beta reliant, how can you grade something based on a sequence of moves that aren’t too physically hard?
