2nd go. came close to the flash. Cracking problem but maybe about 6c for the tall!

The magic grit connies decended. Stuck like glue. Bit trickier for the short it seemed but just as good.

Excellent. A curiously committing snatch from a pinch on the bottom of the nose to the good hold higher up, then just a casual reach to the top. Great problem, great spot.

Felt unexpectedly good in the cold and dry, like most grit problems it's easier in great conditions.

Primo conditions today, felt like hard 7A+/7B, but it also felt like velcro which helped.

Easy if you're long, good though.

Lovely problem up a great feature. Beautiful spot too. Clearly never 7b+, but what does that matter?

Quickly worked out the moves and then sent first go. Soft for 7B+, but a great problem in a beautiful setting. Just a bit midgey this time of year...

jess bt 26/Apr/15 Sent

came back to this boulder after a year of trying it the first time, figured the right hand bump and got it the first go. really great problem but soft for 7b+.

Quality problem! 7b

jake_haddock ??/2013 Sent x

Second go, should've flashed it! Not harder than 7b in my opinion but I am a lank..

with Callum Hegarty
Joe Lawson ??/2013 Sent x

Possibly the most picturesque setting in the Peak but a little too close the stream for my liking, great problem all the same!

al123 10/Nov/12 Sent

Thuggy. Went left hand first to the nose and topped out above the river on the right. Hardish 7B or soft 7B+?

nathanlee 15/Oct/12 Sent x

Beautiful setting, nice moves, neo classic. 7b.

gcarmichael 15/Oct/12 Sent x

Quality, well fun!

Jumped on the send train ;-). Probs a bit soft but great fun
