Could do every move apart from the last to the ledge on the boulder problem. (Although with no help from Harry's Mr tickle beta!). Want to come back and get it done.The moves reminded me why I love slate!

Got to the porthole then its gets hard! Although I think I have thought of a way of doing it....

bouldered out the start and got up to the porthole, which is surprisingly bad. roped up and tried the moves above but no chance.

Right hand start, tried direct but damp. Also tried heading the shot, fell off just under 3rd bolt. Also tried NeverNever land, past the iron bar but it rained.

This route was vh (very hard) the hold on the hard move has been improved to a finger jug!!!! it used to be totally rounded and the one finger pocket thay you had to dyno for has been lowered!!!! Oh the irony of it all. might bolt some decent holds on it one day.
