Couple of goes to do the bouldery start, absolutely brilliant route, worth finishing up the route not just doing the boulder problem!

Far too hot and greasy to try boulder problems like this - lots of falling off first!

done many years ago, but had forgotten the stumpies sequence so had to figure it out again. Really sweet moves.
