Lead pitch 2, direct finish.
Rachel Slater - AltLd O/S - 20/Jun/14 with Tim Newton
Lead the boldest, seconded the direct finish. Expected to find it easier after great wall and the axe feeling more like E2/3, but I found it pretty challenging, mentally anyway.

Went too far right at the top as well. The line in the ground up guide is wrong and the description doesn't make up for it. Good scary ish 6a moves as a reward for going wrong though!

George led first pitch but trended too far right above overlaps making it feel like scary E5 6a, and belaying in the wrong place (end of the boulder traverse). Finished up The Boulder in one 60m pitch.

sharpie - Lead O/S - Aug/76 with Phill Thomas
The infamous bolt had been removed some time before - modern gear was quite sufficient though I took some time over the crux moves. The photos Steve took were nearly destroyed by cack-handed opening of the camera (Mick Brady, take a bow) but might be rescued by modern technology.
P.S. Yes, but only if we go to black & white.
