Rockfax Description
Romp up to the third bolt, then it gets tough! Very bouldery. Linking leftwards to the lower-off of Overnite Sensation gives Connect 5, 8a+. © Rockfax

Sequence came together surprisingly fast, led clean to third clip, leading through to the belay might be a life-time's work. Some good moves on reasonably friendly holds; far nicer than the "connoisseur's choice" I was expecting.

Rp 7B+ to a boulder problem - seem to remember the hard bit was reaching for a single Krab in a bolt for a belay. Extending with a draw was a no no
