really nice route with some bouldery moves - went on the second tie-in
RichyBOYY - Lead RP - 01/May/15 with Jamie

Really enjoyed this problem! Really good style for a boulderer like me, with a nice technical finish. Snuffed an attempt keeping left foot on going for the top. Definitely adds to the climb having the crux top

Bit eliminate, but good boulder problem in the sky - need to stay direct for the grade but still pretty soft!

Don't understand the description. Hard moves up rightwards, surely? Very reach-dependent, ranging literally from about 6b+ to 7b+ I would think.

Off the last hold on onsight, got it next go. Several ways to skin the proverbial cat.

Worked the crux out. Chuffed. Basically three hard pulls. Too tired to rp.

Good moves at the top, would be an awesome route if it was just more of the top...

Unfortunately, went up and right (followed the chalk) - definitely not a v5 move - therefore a bit eliminate...not a fan!

Didnt grab the top - instead grabbed the ring because it was waaaaaay too soggy to hold the top.

Came off on the last hold first go, got it clean straight after that. Easier moves lower down followed by a bouldery finish.
northerngreg - Lead RP - 04/Apr/09 with Jo Lee

Indeed this has been retrobolted. Didn't know what route it was but had a crack anyway. Looked about Fr6b so wondered why I kept coming off. I guess it's around Fr7a?
