Climb the wall just left of centre to the overhang. Step left and climb the awkward flake crack to finish.

Found it a breeze. Didn't pull the mantle at the top as lots of rope drag and didn't want to damage the lovely sandstone. Loved my first day at Bowles. Will be back!

Make sure you set the anchor up over Mick's arete and back it up on the bolt to the left of the tree (if facing over the edge) so that the rope doesn't swing round down the gully, top feels really sketchy otherwise.

Nice climb until the bulgy crack . . . then it gets silly

too tired to tackle the small roof at the top, but enjoyed a bold climb to that point.
