Starboard Traverse - Extension >>
|Located to the left as you walk down the steps, in the same area as all the other main bouldering. This climbs the obvious large roof and hanging arete feature, a line that screams out to be climbed! Start standing on an undercut block under the roof, move out to the lip and jump out left to the hanging arete. Finish up the arete via some committing moves. NB: avoid the footblocks to the left and right. Highball.

Repeated dispite the flake being wet. Feeling stronger since the summer. Now for the lefthand start project!

good line but abit crumbly at top. Think a few holds may have broke

Awsome problem, one of the best I've done! Spent a session on it a week ago but did about 4th go today :-) Scary finishing moves!
