Maybe not the most enormous grades ever, but this thing is hard and an absolute beauty of a line. Needs a bit of a scrub, but wow!

Great wee vid, the lack of histrionics was refreshing. Especially when he realised the foothold was broken, no drama but I felt his pain.

Excellent, i noticed that this superb line had been climbed and asked on the forums a while ago.

Good effort Simon on such a great line must go back and try it.

Franco - has the scooped wall to the right had a ascent yet, the one above the dreadful landing/gully?

Great video - and bouldering videos don't usually do it for me, I appreciate the work involved. I loved the progression, especially getting to the 'really close to the top out but now with 4 miserable points of contact' moment, I am sure most folks have been there. Thanks.

"The Magic Scoop"? - just to the left of this.

No ascents to my knowledge. From the base of the scoop to the top is a brilliant piece of climbing and fairly steady in the grand scheme of things. Someone just needs to find a way to start it - from the left (sketchy but easier), or direct (font 8a/+?)
