Is that a different Cobra Crack then, Tom?
1) Fear: me finger will get stuck.
2) More fear: the jam will slip leaving bits of finger behind in the crack- I get more scared the less fingers I can get in the crack, even though just two fingers seem to make an otherwise good jam.
Can't wait for the next lesson in Crack School.
Someone needs to tell Pete he's got a Gerbil on his shoulder
Excellent video guys!

Pete always has a gerbil with him. He's full of tips and useful rockover beta, right there when you need it :-)
There must be the odd jam you've worried about falling off on to? you know something with a sharp edge in the wrong place,
I've never managed to get a hand stuck but I've got my feet caught on 3 occasions all of them at Ramshaw. I think this is evidence that crack climbing is prefectly safe unless you are at Ramshaw :-)
Thanks very much. I almost can't believe that I never thought of the difference in hold between thumbs up and thumbs down. I feel just with this snippet of info that suddenly another grade will open up to me. You can bet I'll be crack hunting this weekend :-)
Get Rich Quick at Robin Hood Quarries is a great E5 finger crack for those who've done London Wall.
I didn't forget Our Forte in the "hands episode" though!!
Brilliant article, cheers. Can't wait for the rest. Could've done with these a few weeks back when I was getting spanked at Millstone!
