Most enjoyable. 7Bish probably about right. It definitely ain't 7C!

Another Ilkley nemesis down. This has always seemed desperate until I found the sequence that works for me. Felt steady when it went, 7B I think. Loss of ring has made the end easier to drop but probably no physically harder. Still absolutely classic.

7b ish.

A very good problem. Soft even for the 7b/+ grade given in the new Yorkshire Grit Bouldering guide.

Really good, don't ignore the undercut, you don't really need to use the arete at all!! 7b/+ in new guide
