Unprotected start, then tricky moves through the quartz bulge but well protected.

Tricky at the quartz bulge, made a bit of a dogs dinner of it. Good route tho.

I started up Springboard; they is one hard move at the start of the quartz bulge but it is well protected.

I started up Springboard as this is where the Gary Latter guidebook shows the route going. The Quartz bulge was very vegetated over the top, ended up pulling on grass as couldn't find any more holds!

You need to do a bit of gardening on your way up. The grassy topout is particularly fun. ;)

Quartz moves are surprisingly interesting for the grade

Took a few attempts to get past the quartz lump, climbed high from there and along slab immediately below the roof, not sure that is the right route but after the struggle I was just happy to get up.

started up springboard but a bit wet, went onto chute and traversed to finish up twin cracks, slightly wandering but good fun, think i did three routes in one :-)
