Starts to the left of 'The Gypsy', in the centre of the overhanging face of the Virgin Boulder. Reach the slanting crack from the break (optional undercuts) to finish at the break.

Don't try it without a spotter unless you're trying to loose a foot!

Getting closer. Got to the 'jug' in the crack, and left hand up on the crimp, going to the lip. It'll go someday soon.

Excellent problem! Keep your feet jammed into the lower cracks to avoid swinging out when slapping up the diagonal crack.

Took a bit to work out the stand and then did the sit first go after.

End of a session. Reworked out the bottom half again (it's been a while) but too beasted for the top section. Another time.

From a stand, although the sit will deffo go now im clued up on the sequence :D Cheeky toe hook in the lower break, with a heel on the ramp to the right makes the final move a lot easier.

Oooh, I like this. Got to the second last move (in two pitches) but it's great. Will be back when less spent to send this one. Loving the slopey steepness, felt good to be on some cold, grippy grit again.

Just the stand.

Warmed up on the stand then just about managed the sit - had to really lay one on for the hold at the top. Nice to have the crag to myself.
