A technical boulder problem on a rope. Hard to onsight (?) but easy to redpoint or flash.

After clipping bolt to bolt it went on first RP. Actually quite rewarding for a horrible little slab, really enjoyed it.

Not that I could have done this climb anyway - but it was dark by the time I got on it!
