Was easy til awkward bulge and borehole bit. Tried to lead first then failed but toprope later. Saw others do with hand reaching high north east to top but I couldn't reach this. the way I did it in the end was how Mike did it, by putting one hand on top of another in the best hold above borehole. First time I was trying to have a hand in each hold but right hand hold wasn't good

Went slightly right of the borehole, although suspecting it wasn't the proper way as it was a difficult move to finish off with.

Went wrong way at top onto 6b and couldn't reverse so bit of a link up!

Found it difficult to read the route past the borehole. Tried variations of going left of the bolt, direct, and right of the bolt. Felt easy once I'd worked out what to do.

was looking for an easier move than was there past the borehole. A high foot on smallish hold ok if you commit.

much easer going up right of the bore hole going left makes it about 6c and resulted in some large falls!
