Onsighted the top section first time finishing boulder problem. Sort of a pointless extension from a difficulty perspective if you have any semblance of route fitness, though it gives the boulder problem a proper finish. Nice though. Many years on the boulder problem.

Flashed the boulder problem then watched a mate work the top on a top rope. Jumped on it and got it first go don't know what to put so clean with beta will do. Real cool route first sport climb of the season even got the disco leg on the go!

Put top clip in to work it straight off, on-shoulder start makes it easier for the shorties! Piece of piss once on the wierd clumpy 2 finger pocket thing, just need to get the start clean and then it's in the bag!

A great finish to a popular problem, if you have done the boulder problem the top is very onsightable
