Dynamic moves to cross the steep section give the hardest climbing. High in the grade.

It's become an instant classic with the locals. Intrestingly the bulge is not the crux if you're tall, it's the headwall above!

This route is now harder, hard 7b+ or maybe 7c. Someone has pulled off the jug on the bulge, what remains is a reasonable first joint edge but it makes the moves to and from it a fair bit harder. I've recleaned the hold and reclimbed the moves. The moves are pretty much the same but you can't just jump for the jug now, you have to use the short person static method - bad luck tall people.

Did this route in September Very good climbing of a bouldering nature. Pretty stiff moves hard 7b+ but one of those you can either do the moves or you can`t type routes, If you know what I mean? I ended up jumping for the hold on the lip a great dyno!
