2nd go. It's all about the rat crimps! Good to get this so quick when I couldn't conceive of climbing it last year.

Great problem. Took quite a few goes. Spicy mantle finish. V4 in the BMC guide is mean. 6C+ is fair.

Seriously hard! Very good. Had a real epic trying to link into the last move. In the dark. V5ish.

Ground up. Tricky moves on the bouldery start, mostly because you can't see your footholds. Exposed but easy finish. The start is a very good boulder problem.

Good footwork required - as perhaps someone to point out the lower feet once your body is over the upper slab
