The fine undercut prow above the cave is the classic of the Boulderfield. Start with both hands on a good handrail at the back of the cave. Steep moves on weird jugs lead to a hard pull around the lip. Finish up the nose.

An intermediate fell off this last year rendering the problem slightly harder. However there is no change in grade.

Excellent problem. Definately worth going to the boulderfield just for this

can't for the life of me work out the beta for the move round the lip...
so many possible foot placements and none seem to work... :-(

BETA ALERT: Use a heel(R) on the sloper on the lip and a toe hook/heel under the roof (L) then mve the right hand up to a high crimp...

cheers for the beta.... too wrecked by the time I got there last time but will give it a good next time - Gav gave me some pointers too - if I can't get it now I'm just weak..
