As in the title, found yesterday (Sunday) morning at Kobe. PM with a description and I'll get it back to you.

Mike Adams was there apparently, could try dropping him a message https://www.instagram.com/michaeladamsis/

Nice to chat briefly by Grunne Holle :)

Believe Dave Mason was there recently as well according to his IG post.

Droyd - apologies for thread hyjack, but I donít suppose you have the coordinates for the Kobe boulder? I noticed you helpfully put them on UKC for Casu Marzu. Cheers.

I dunno if you know but the rockfax app has a live map that shows your location overlaid, itís pretty much the best way to find any boulder in the peak

A friend sent me this which took me to pretty much the right place.

That's correct. 50m east along the path from Outlook roof and down a bit.
For other boulders Dingdong is right. Alan recorded the location data as he took the topo photos, so the boulder locations on the app are very accurate.

I was particularly impressed with the Platitude Inspector boulder being 40m left of the MTB track in the RF, when it is actually 4m left. Although not quite as impressed as DPiddy giving Plongitude Inspector 6B+.

There's a prominent leaning win-trunked at the lower path where you head downhill for Kobe (Arete), it's also pretty much directly below Wharnside Story.
