Nice problem, thought it felt more like font 6a+/6b, definitely want mats with you!

Oh that's cool that it's already had a repeat; thought it was an ace line. Lots more potential for good problems in that area as well :D I thought the top rock over was definitley 6b+/6c, although this might have been due to some snappy holds on my attempt!

Yeah, I came across some snappy rock on some of the other boulders too. Just to check, I rocked over onto the slab on the left hand side of the photo? I also noticed its probably possible to top out via a pocket on the slab on the right hand of the photo? Definitely lots of potential since the landslide! This problem was a good find!

Yeah, you rock out directly above the double finishing jugs at the end of the prob. Didn't check the right. Did you find any other good problems there?
Bunchuk - 06/Mar/10
I didn't climb anything else worth noting, I was only back in the Gower for the weekend and wanted to check out the rockfall and your problem whilst I was down. The right-hand variation looks like it will be good too!
