C8 6a Wilkinson Stand start and using a high R heel make a big move up to a jug. Using small feet move L to the arete and around the corner to follow the sharp spine to the top.
C 9, 10, 11 Projects None The seaside face of boulder C has some amazing high ball problems on a smooth face. I have not climbed them due to their height and the potential of falling, but there are at least 3 problems. Please don’t bolt.
