Joey C - Lead - 02/Jun/12 with Dave Bowler

After having found Hollyash Crack and Knight's Move really easy I jumped on this as it started to rain and proceded to have a mare. I struggled around the corner to one of the most awkward positions I've ever placed gear in. Eventually I got a nut in the crack, whilst fearing for my life, but it was too deep to clip the quickdraw onto so I clipped the draw onto the whole set of nuts. Three moves later one end of the half rope got stuck on the nuts and I had to untie it to finish! What a mess!

Climbed late in the day, and probably should have given it a miss due to the tendinitis in my elbow. Nice traverse section though.

Really nice route this, the whole crag was swarming so we thought we would try something that we probably wouldn't get better conditions for, plus everything else was taken! It brought back grim memories of a route I did a couple of days previously at Stanage Plantation/Popular which I had to retreat off due to not being able to read/pissing it down with rain. The rain was looking a similar prospect for this one! Up the back crack with a bomber hex and plenty of solid jams is easy. I stepped out left, placed a size 1 cam and 6 nut about a 1/3rd of the way along the break. Made sure I wouldn't get too much rope drag and clipped. Jam in left hand side, take a hold in the tallest bit of the break, feet on and walk hands along carefully but hurridly! Actually found turning the lip not too bad. High right foot on the arete, undercut the bottom of the crack and layback the top past the lip and a bit of a rock over onto right foot, then there is some solid jams whilst you put some gear in past the lip. Once established on this is nice pleasent easy jamming. VS 4c maybe? I guess it might just about warrant 5a. 2 stars, would possibly be 3 if not so green and traverse a bit longer!
