Rockfax Description
Another old test-piece showing its age. The lower section with the good climbing is still in good nick. Boulder out to the big hole (V4 - harder than it looks). Sort out gear in the break (peg) and stretch or jump to good holds above. The rest is easy, though dirty and the pegs are old. There is a new lower-off. © Rockfax

βeta: Is it worth bolting if all the good climbing is on the V4 boulder prob to the hole? Won't that encourage more traffic and just make the good boulder problem even more polished than it already is?

Stoney Boy 29 Sep, 2016 Lead RP Top end of the grade and must be close to E6 to onsight. Fell off close to belay on first attempt of day due to cobwebs and strange. The above comment about the rest being easy is somewhat misleading.......
