Had a nightmare getting the heel to stick (10+ attempts!) but once I got it to work it went within 2 tries. Quite high above the pads by the time you get to the top. Probably the best boulder I've climbed so far.

jstringer 20/Mar/14 Sent dnf

One for another day, managed the heel hook eventually to get the pocket on the lip but did not manage to get as far as the "clock face" hold. Awesome problem!
