Pete Robins has climbed a trio of problems on a lone boulder in the Gallt yr Ogof area of Dyffryn Ogwen. Others have dabbled on this bit of rock over the years but no significant claims have been made to date (unless you know different?).

The boulder in question can be found down left of Momentary Grip. The main line, Lying Low (7B) tackles the steepness from the obvious low sds. While Bum Deal (7A) exits up right via the slopey lip rail onto the left side of the front face. A final variation, Tiny Dancer (6C+) does the same start but then slaps out right to a sloper and up crimps in the centre of wall.

"Good problems, and close to the path! said Pete.

The first video shows Pete repeating Lying Low for the camera - unfortunately it had started raining by then so he slipped off the easier finishing section. It does show the meat of the problem though.
