First climbed by Jerry Moffatt in 1997 and graded E9 7b, it has since been regraded at E6 7a, however the E grade is fairly meaningless on this desperate but short route-come-boulder problem. The boulder grade is thought to be highball 8A.
Ned Feehally is the 2011 British bouldering champion, and is part of the team behind Beastmaker Fingerboards.
