On the right side this time. I also attempted to repeat the 7b low start on the left hand side, but the foothold broke off as I was rocking up (SORRY!). You now have to kick about two inches higher to get a foot on the bottom of the arete, making it feel much harder. The right hand (regular) start is unaffected.

Graeme Hammond 03/Nov/12 Sent x

both sides, (3 times on the left, eliminating the ledge out to the left after the first go and once on the right) direct start on the left rocking on is tricky. Superb problem, better on the left

RHS, 6Bish. Couldn't get off the ground on the left.

Nice. Wasn't planning on bouldering so didn't have a pad. Luckily didn't need it. Font 6b/+ might be fairer.

did on the left as the BMC guide says. really nice but not V5. also did the big high foot direct start at v5/6ish. sooo good

Ian Broome 26/Nov/11 Sent rpt

really good problem

DaveFidler 20/Nov/11 Sent x

Right hand side. Lobbed off LHS at top, thankfully into a lot of spotters and mats. With lots of strong people.

Si dH 20/Nov/11 Sent x

did on both sides but both starting by rocking on from the right, as couldnt do the direct start up the left side.
