Boulder out the moves to access the ramp then hand traverse up this to one more tricky move at a gap in the ramp which gains the finishing jugs. Probably V5 for the short.

V5 for the short? or HVS 5c in old money (or the old guide at any rate) good to see a V grade E2 was just silly.

A pleasant potter. More fun in the cold!

Simple: E2 6a to onsight solo. V/B-something-or-other to boulder out above mats and spotters. Your choice really. Neither of which approach affects the quality of the route which is of course excellent and goes exactly how it looks.

High, but easy topout. Start may be hard for the short, though. Would be a 6a/a+ in Font. Realy nice boulder!

according to the "peak district bouldering" guidebook not to be taken away is a 6c, this makes it a v4/v5 but forget the grade. It is such a nice problem, start is difficult for the small but it is really nice.

according to the peak district bouldering guide book it gets a 6c which makes a v4/v5. But who cares about the grade the fact is it is a really nice problem but harder for the short.
