Owen Hayward has extended the circuit of problems at the Fisherman’s View Boulders on the Mynydd y Graig escarpment above Rhiw. The new problems can be found on the second block down from the Grinding Barrel boulder (i.e. just left of the Cloudbreak boulder)

Most significant is Pocket Rocket 7A/+ which starts at the sds position at the base of back undercut aręte (the straight up line from here is In the Pocket 6B+) and traverses right around onto the rounded edge of the front slab facet and makes a tricky mantel finish (common to a straight up 6C sds line called Rocket).
