The Highwayman*** V7 / f7A+
[James Squire about to pull into the crux move on 'The Highwayman' at Ladye Bay, Clevedon. , 2 kb]On the main wall to the left as you walk down the steps, on the same wall as 'Starboard Traverse'. This climbs the direct line through the blank face, inbetween the arete on the left and the blocks to the right in the middle of the wall.
Start sitting on the obvious sit start, make a move out right to the deep crimp, the strait up though gastons and crimps to finally making a big move to a sharp lefthand gaston 'shield' just below the lip and to the top! Highball, bring mats and a spotter.

Flash. Im not climbing V10 boulders let alone flashing them so I think the grade is off a good bit. Thanks to James for coming out to give us the beta.

Such a great problem, took 20 minutes but it definatly suits my style perfectly. Possibly my favourite problem that I've done yet! I used a slighly different position to James to do the last move; so was slightly easier than James's original beta.

Such a sick problem, think I tried this before but thought was too hard. Found some new beta today. Took a few big falls from the top though, feels quite exposed :-) Video on my facebook page here:!/photo.php?v=405195002869905 Update: new beta is a lot easier, v8?
