The 1st one. The boulder problem up the middle of the slabby boulder.

If it’s the one I’m thinking of next to Spanking the Monkey, it could be a contender for the hardest slab in the UK... I’d be very impressed if it went down.

That's the one. Doesn't look that hard.

Hahaha! Yes I have since you ask!

Could barely get off the ground without using either arête, but I’m no superstar.

It's one of those, easy if it goes down. It's about balance and friction

Try it facing outwards, bum, palms and flat feet for extra friction! 

I've seen something similar work on another "unclimbable" slab.
