After Phil traversed off top to left, tried to lead full route but fell off on final moves. Made it over on second attempt with a bit of 'traditional' technique - looks easier to come up on right of bulge as there's something that looks almost like a hold.

Spent an age on the top bulge, and ended up traversing off. Hol seconded it clean, using a different sequence of holds. Think I'd been trying in the wrong place!

Annoying. Got up the initial bouldery wall to the roof. Unfortunately, the rest was covered in wet moss, so I came back down.
