Think that might be Davies Ramp although the descriptions are a bit confusing on that buttress. Pukka spot though. Did you do Ripper? Uber Classic.

Cheers Dave, Slipstones is stunning for sure. Yeah, a bit confusing with the problems here - the 'Simple Sally' description in the Yorkshire Grit guide talks about small edges on the face and holds on the arete. I used the small edges and arete and it felt 6c or 6c+ tops. Nice problem all the same, definitely need to go back when it's less than 10 degrees (or 20 for that matter..).

Yorkshire Grit also reckons that Davie's Ramp starts on the block..?!!

Superb bouldering shot, looks a great problem.

The arete you're on is about 5+, davies ramp is about 6c starting from block traversing and finishing in the middle or starting on arete from ground. Simple sally does that but direct off some harsh crimps, no arete or block, 7a+. Or at least thats my understanding of it! :)
