Flashed on right. Second go on left as I found it hard to get off the ground.

On both sides, well good!

On the right side this time. I also attempted to repeat the 7b low start on the left hand side, but the foothold broke off as I was rocking up (SORRY!). You now have to kick about two inches higher to get a foot on the bottom of the arete, making it feel much harder. The right hand (regular) start is unaffected.

Beautiful looking problem in a lovely setting.

both sides, (3 times on the left, eliminating the ledge out to the left after the first go and once on the right) direct start on the left rocking on is tricky. Superb problem, better on the left

Nice. Wasn't planning on bouldering so didn't have a pad. Luckily didn't need it. Font 6b/+ might be fairer.

Ian Broome - Sent rpt - 26/Nov/11

did on both sides but both starting by rocking on from the right, as couldnt do the direct start up the left side.

Right hand side. Lobbed off LHS at top, thankfully into a lot of spotters and mats. With lots of strong people.
