Rockfax Description
Start from the large flat hold and pull up and slightly right on small holds and a pinch for a classic Bowderstone tick. A number of variations exist ranging from V8 to V9. The sit-down start is V11. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start matched on the large flatty and slap up to
the shoddy pinch. Now nifty pulling on ever smaller edges to finish. The best moves on the stone! Can also be done starting slightly right (old skool version) using the big edge (X hold); same grade.

Fell off last move due to poor skin on flash. Closest ive ever come to flashing 7C

First time repeating this, it used to be 7C. Such a good line. The description needs updating as hold x has broke making the RH start something like 7C

Got some great beta off of a helpful local to help with the first move and can now hang it and almost crack on. Next time.

Trying the slap straight up version, the 7B one. Could get to the slopey pinch but couldn't quite make it stick. Another project just that one move felt well cool.

Tried the first move over 50 times, only stuck it 3 times and flashed the top section! Classic only because of its history/location, not fantastic movements imo. Slightly disappointed, not as good as Coconutter at Gouther.

Now the X-hold's broke, this is hard V9 the left hand way.
