[Brilliant problem on a perfect spring day!, 4 kb]The sitting start to the arete left of the major crack splitting the boulder, harder the further under you start - most natural to start on the obvious good crack/sidepull holds, but a lower eliminate on quartz pebble and low left hand is possible.

1st go but had already done the stand as a warm-up so not a true flash.

Lovely problems with a real sense of unlocking it when you get the foot sequence

Really fun climbing. Getting your left foot locked in the crack makes the crux very straight forward. Over after about 2 moves.

Superb. Close last week but ran out of skin. Start underneath with right hand on pebble hold and left in base of crack.

Good sustained problem, thats all about the pebble foot hold! sit start with arse on the ground, right hand on pebble hold, left hand in the lowest part of the crack and heel hook in the dish
