Followed the crack then went left of the main face as the guide seemed to suggest (have read more now and see that was wrong). Missed the last clip though - oops. Then had another go on a top rope to try the direct (correct) route, which seemed a half grade harder than going left.

Rushed up the first section but the mid-section sure did slow me down. Happily finished on second but would have been a bold lead for me

Tried to finish direct up the middle in the hope of a decent hold near the top. Found a wet dirty sloper instead and had to pop off. Finished by moving left then right again as the other two had done.

BB1 - Lead - Jul/11 with Alex Roberts

Last move doesn't need height. There's a good LH pocket, a spot for fingers on the right hand and that lets you get your feet up. Slap up LH and there's a lovely ridge for fingers.

Rested on second bolt and removed two big and very loose rocks that were a hold on the left (at the bottom of the curved edge). Still a 5 (maybe slightly easer now as there is a good foothold)
