Hawk's Nest Crack*** VS 4c
[Me on Hawks Nest Crack, 3 kb]12m. 12m. The classic jamming crack iturns out to be awkward despite the useful chockstone (knees obligatory). From the ledge finish over the exposed jutting flake on the left for an extra thrill. © ROCKFAX

ffs, fluffed it lower down whilst fumbling a cam in, then did the move no problem second go. Still a good one to practice your jamming, they're sinkers; the flake finish is nice. Also a bit of a sandbag.

it starts of as a slighty overhanging hand jam that can be protected before reaching the crux of trying to get around the roof. after that it is a fun crack climb before reaching the epic flake which you traverse out on with nothing below you then just climb on to it to reach the top.

Totally underestimated it. Probably not the best warm up route. When I'd figured out I was avoiding jamming in the lower section and did so much easier. I nice reminder I needed to go back to jamming school. An excellent, varied crack climb and the flake finish caps it off nicely with a bit of exposure.

Dan limped up the lower middle section with some difficulty, and on the second I could see why. Some rough jamming, and a few reaches where it was probably helpful to have longer arms. After the step out left, however, things got both easier and more fun; the juggy flake finish is a must do.

Climbed up to the crux, got too pumped. Managed to reverse to the ground. Jack tried it but had the same problem. Was too hard really of my first day back climbing but couldn't be arsed to go up and set an absail up to strip the gear so gave it one more go. Managed to get slightly higher, mid crux but just got zapped of energy so had to rest on the gear for a couple of minutes. Got it afterwards. Didn't have to use any knees so maybe get a few points back??

Chris's second trad lead (after a long break) and he really enjoyed it... I, on the other hand, thought it was a bit of a pig. Wedged myself in at every available opportunity, very thructchy start that improves as you go higher, with the redeeming final exposed finish that brings a smile to your face after the torrid struggle below.

Jake Young - Lead O/S - 19/Oct/11 with Chris

Wow! Probably best climb todate! With a variety of factors: jamming in early sections to chock stone - using plenty of cams and hexes (one used one size too big gave great difficulty in removing and had to ab down) - after chock stone eased on left before final nice layback with lovely finger flake and final jug hold - The finsh via the upper Flake was exquisite - horizontal nut (?#6) placed in break - pushed in from right gave 100% seat as prved hard to remove and had to ab down for this one too! Short traverse out to left (over thin air!) before fingery clmb up to flake and over to top roof! Lovely!

The upper section provided some good exposure but thrutching up the lower cracks did not make for an enjoyable climb

jack89 - 2nd O/S - 14/Apr/11 with Jake

Lethal route. Not joking in guidebook saying "awkward" the starting move from the offwidth to the chock stone i fought with and slipped down a bit more than a few times. then as frustrated then managed to trap foot while jamming it. Had to hang on rope to take weight off and even then took few attempts to free... calm would definately have paid. Ended up pulling up hand over hand on rope to pass the crux. Nice sequence above and beautiful flake to top out over, thats where the atmosphere rather than the fight really took over.

Lessons were learnt on this climb - the main one being: if you have a helmet, don't lend it to a friend who will then leave it at their house instead of bringing it out to the crag next time they go to meet you.

Great route, about as expected, move up the first offwidth with a bit of a thrutch, then had a bit of a wobbley move near the top of the initial crack, for some reason I moved onto the right side of the arete, cacked myself and moved back over onto the left and up. The rest was suprisingly easy, with a lovely jamming crack and big easy layback flake at the top in a very spectacular position! Don't believe I used any knees though!
