A hard (V6?) boulder problem at the start leads into an enjoyably 6b above. Took many tries to get the boulder, the first hard move was OK, but the dyno to the mono of horrendous feet took a while to dial. Well worth the effort! Probably not as hard as people say as not really sustained and possible to get a very good rest after the boulder.

Jake Young 10/Oct/15 Lead dog

So close but no cigar, keen to head back got my finger into the mono on the last move a number of times but i either did not commit or else need to strengthen my middle finger..... one to come back for, cool and techy.

Cleaned off some dirty gastons between the porthole and jug - useful and apparently ignored. . .? Pretty cool, gibbered up the 6b after the start.

Could do every move apart from the last to the ledge on the boulder problem. (Although with no help from Harry's Mr tickle beta!). Want to come back and get it done.The moves reminded me why I love slate!

Got to the porthole then its gets hard! Although I think I have thought of a way of doing it....

bouldered out the start and got up to the porthole, which is surprisingly bad. roped up and tried the moves above but no chance.

Right hand start, tried direct but damp. Also tried heading the shot, fell off just under 3rd bolt. Also tried NeverNever land, past the iron bar but it rained.

I thin this was the one i fell off at the top because i couldnt reach the hidden hold-but there you go!

This route was vh (very hard) the hold on the hard move has been improved to a finger jug!!!! it used to be totally rounded and the one finger pocket thay you had to dyno for has been lowered!!!! Oh the irony of it all. might bolt some decent holds on it one day.
