Grade Route

One for me one for you. Tic taccy finger warmup. Probably avoid the cracked jug.

FA: Postman, 6 Jun

Probably gonna need some after this. Start right of burnt tree, past the obvious break. Probably easier for the tall.

Can you reach the diamond? Another spicy highball! Straight up from below the flake. Crimp ledge to the left is out.

FA: Jared Yeo, 2 Jul

Off undercling to the two slopers then a leap of faith to the ledge.

FA: Adam Griffiths

Slab right behind Ali Baba. Stand start off crimp rail, head straight up.

Start in the big pocket and dyno to top of arete to jug. Then carefully up ramp.

FA: Tim O'Neill

Start El Kooko and dyno up left around the corner to the starting jug of Pump Action. Finish as for Pump Action.

FA: Joe Hodgson

Start low 'matched' on the flake down below the roof. Gain the juggy ledge and lunge to starting pockets of Ascension Day, finishing up and left as for Ascension Day. Knock it down a grade if you exit via jugs.

Start: Sit

FA: Paul Westwood

Start on pockets (use a cheat stone if you have to) then tough around bulge skipping the jugs out right.

FA: Matt Wilder

Sit start low and move through beautiful slopers to roof and finish up jugs. The best problem in the Balkans?

Jack Folkes

FA: Rob Saunders

Start as for El Kooko 'matched' on the flake below the roof and move right to finish up Sloper-Dan Milosevic.

The original problem, hardly done anymore. Link the start of 'Sloper-Dan Milosevic' into 'Ascension Day', exiting to the left of the horn. (Jugs are off).

As 'Boogie Knights (Original)', but exiting right of the horn via jugs as on 'Sloper-Dan Milosevic'. Significantly easier finish than the original.

Start: Sit

FA: Matt Wilder

Start = as for ElKooko Traverse right staying (Very) low and finish up Snake Bite.

FA: Diego DeDiana, 2010

Boogie Knights starting as for El Kooko, topping as per ascension day.

"Low Down Boogie (Eliminate)" with the Sloper-Dan finish.

Oliver Chen

Start 'matched' on the low start below the jug rail of El Kooko as for Sloper Dan low. Climb across this problem all staying low all the way into and then up shell shocked.

FA: Daniel da Silva

Sit start as for Sloper Dan climb across into the start of Shell Shocked and finish as for that problem.

FA: Charles

Mantle into left undercling then all the way to the rail then over.

FA: Tim O'Neill

Not worth the extra effort!

Start: Sit

FA: Tim O'Neill

Previously called, 'they call me brock landers'

Sit start below Akhtar on the obvious slot and climb only the low lip left into El Kooko.

FA: Fab, 9 Aug 2014

Sit start below Akhtar on the obvious slot and climb only the low lip left into Boogie Knights original finish. Knock a grade off for the variant finish.

Chest Rockwell lip traverse with Sloper-Dan Milosevic finish.

Start Sloper-Dan and climb to jugs just left of tree, up to crimps & dead point to slopey rail to finish out left. Probably a grade easier if you move a bit left into undercling & climb as for Shell Shocked.

FA: Damien Alexander, 10 May 2015

Start as for Chest Rockwell & finish with Captain Courageous.

FA: Damien Alexander, 10 May 2015

You have to go really fast for this one, like the Pakistani bowler! Stand start and mantle to left crimp and leap to top, then over.

FA: Tim O'Neill

Not worth the extra effort!

Start: Sit

FA: Tim O'Neill

Pinch the plate, paste your feet and reach around bulge to crimp to join I10.

FA: Matt Wilder

Jump start to jug then over.

FA: Adam Griffiths

There is lots of sitting on your arse for this one! Sit down for the first jug, then up, have a seat for the next move, up again and over … sterling!

Start: Sit

FA: Tim O'Neill

Dyno from the start of Diplomatic Immunity to the top of I Am Twelve.

FA: Joe Hodgson, 2011
