I re-climbed the old problem Suggy's Groove on Wave Buttress at Baildon the other day. There used to be a large boulder to step off but it got rolled away by the council we think when they were trying to block the cave entrance up.

Anyway the new version climbs in from the right and my sequence is incredibly reach dependent. I can keep my feet on a good foot rail all the way to the old starting position. If you can't keep your feet on this rail the grade increases dramatically!
Hence why it hadn't been done even though Jordan and Sutty both put some effort in several years ago.

it's around 7B ish if you're tall (6 foot plus) and a lot harder if you're not! I'm assuming this hasn't been done before but if anyone knows otherwise then speak up.

I've climbed Suggy's groove but no idea if that would be the new or old version.
