Left at the penultimate clip, side pull then high left foot. Bump RH and drag right foot up, twist in and release RH to blunt hold. Left foot on flat ledge and LH wide to smooth bad side pull. Feet up, hard with bad LH. RH to obvious shelf. High left foot and tuck knee match shelf, right foot to blunt hold, clip chains

Onsight to the last bolt, then stuck. Need to clip stick and find the sequence for the top

Tried to onsight but fell after the last bolt a couple of moves from the lower off. Good fun if perhaps unbalanced.

Tentatively trying to protect knee.. not successful!

Great climbing, with the crux saved for the top. 3rd go.

I'm pretty sure after reading the comments that I headed up this rather than 'A Ship load of Moonies' as I originally intended to. No rock had collapsed at the start, the two first bolts were about level with each other (and not shared), and I was hanging in there until the last clip, albeit voguing a little for the last couple metres. Then came a bit with tiny sidepulls, not much feet, and square- cut pinches to aim for. Gave up after a couple tries.

Hard. Climbed well up to the crux (at the top, as others have mentioned) on the first go. I probably managed to do all the moves to the top, but didn't link many of them together. Had a second go, but only got one move higher than the first.

Fell off hard last couple moves on insight, hard to read

felt pretty hard at the top, holds very smooth and a bit greasy.
