Rockfax Description
Traverse the long wall from either end but usually from the left. Finish on the ledges on the arete, before the corner. Well pumpy and unfeasibly long. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Traverse the left hand wall from the far left to ledges on the arete. 30m+ of pumpy fun.
Problem 1 in Rockfax: Peak Bouldering (1998)

Didn't know any better so did it R-L, as implied by the book and the massive red arrow. Took some work to figure out a sequence for the finish that I could manage with what's left of the arms when you get there.

Right to Left. Never tried it before today. Pulled on at start, tried all the moves, fell off multiple times, repeated each failed move until i was happy with a sequence. Pulled on at start and fell off a couple of moves from end. Long rest pulled on at start and fell off just past first crux. Figured out what went wrong then sent it. Quite pleased to get so quickly as my stamina isn't good having generally done short boulder problems for 18 months. Got a couple of shake outs on jugs, a hands off rest leaning into a corner and a half decent bridge rest before final crux.

Almost powered out the retro flash but fell on last move. Bit of beta for an easier way to do the crux and just about got it before having to leave.

Finally finally finally. Only took a few years - but today - I did it (right to left and including a mess up after 'the move' near the start that is a nightmare for shorties like me.

Always tried this left to right, though the peak bouldering says right to left! Much better this way. Did it first go like this and then a few laps there and almost back. Great little traverse.

Finally ticked, 8 yrs after first pulling on with Charlie, also remember being shown the crux by Kevin. So many memories. Easy really ;)Did main section 5 times.

Got as far as the last 5 moves maybe on the flash with Joe pointing out stuff. Pulled back on after i fell and finished off the final bit, route grade more appropriate maybe, 6c/6c+??
