Redpointed within an hour :). Upper wall is easy except for a slightly tricky move coming over buldge.

Done boulder problem before, top wall is quite fun

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.

Done the problem before, flashed the top after Slarkey helpfully de-chossed it on his attempt ;).

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!
con321 - Lead β - 13/Apr/12 with simon crisp

got boulder problem sorted and a little bit of beta

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 nice addition to the wall. retro-flashed the boulder problem and flashed the rest.
Andrew Barker - Lead rpt - 05/Aug/11 with Chris Taylor

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