Scramble past the boulders and grass and up into a flake/groove right of Springboard. Good runners protect good moves, bypass the tree ledge and follow the easy flake to the right. Easy angled ground leads to the usual tree belay.

I started up Springboard; they is one hard move at the start of the quartz bulge but it is well protected.

I started up Springboard as this is where the Gary Latter guidebook shows the route going. The Quartz bulge was very vegetated over the top, ended up pulling on grass as couldn't find any more holds!

You need to do a bit of gardening on your way up. The grassy topout is particularly fun. ;)

Took a few attempts to get past the quartz lump, climbed high from there and along slab immediately below the roof, not sure that is the right route but after the struggle I was just happy to get up.

started up springboard but a bit wet, went onto chute and traversed to finish up twin cracks, slightly wandering but good fun, think i did three routes in one :-)

A very nice route.Checked out the E1 option at the Quartz bulge.Sense won out over valour.(E1 option only appears in our old guidebook,can find no reference to it in my new one!)
