Rockfax Description
The roof crack via a jam and jugs is easiest if you stay out from the crack as much as possible. A knee-bar might be of help. © Rockfax

So awkward, not tall enough to reach the jam from the ground so climbed into the crack and squirmed out

Didn't fancy committing to the knee bar with pad or rope. WIMP! Will come back with some gear though, cool jam and moves.

Took a while to trust the jam, and cut loose once i got to the jugs. once the kneebar was secure though it was pretty much all over. Scared the hell out of me though
