Sit start at extreme right of boulder and traverse the length of the boulder before moving up the flake to top out.

The thin seam left of Slim Charles. Possibly the first boulder problem in the forest - a couple of trad climbers I knew had been there in the 1970's but everything was too small for them.

FA: Charlie Creese, 2002

Balance up on good crimp feet and stand tall in the pocket using some very thin crimps on the rail. reach for decent holds at the lip. Likely to have been done back in the day - placeholder name and grade, please correct if you can.

FA: unknown

Balance up onto the obvious edge at the top of the little arc feature. reach up to a thin crimp in the seam. then psh up and right to a good rail. match, smear and reach to a gaston on the top and a spicy finish. Harder for the shorter ones among us! Likely to have been done back in the day - placeholder name and grade, please correct if you can.

Walk up the motorcycle track 50m until you see the problem on the RHS.

Step up onto the right arete and move left using the wide pinch undercling to the central weakness, then back right and up to top out.

Boulder is on the way to the climb labelled V3. Climb the vertical crack

Stand start the far right side of the ground level shelf and go straight up. Whaley top out. May go as a sit start.

Sit Start in right hand crack and then compress up the parallel cracks and top out. Problem is in the small gulley about 20m SW of "The Rail"V1. Likely to have been done back in the day - placeholder name and grade, please correct if you can.

crouch start on the opposing sidepulls down on the right and then up on cracks and crimps (problem is just right of Compression Problem). Likely to have been done back in the day - placeholder name and grade, please correct if you can.
