Rockfax Description
The easy crack leads to a bulge split by a thin crack. Reach for a jug above, then heave away to easy ground. The route is rather unbalanced, low in the grade and a popular first VS lead. © Rockfax

Easy this time. Layaway, long reach to a decent jam and a very high foot. Great dynamic moves, but not 4b as some suggest (unless you lead HVS !).

Managed first time, but with lots of grunting and general fumbling, plus lots of resting trying to work out what to do. Quite pleased to complete it at all, though, as this was my first weekend outdoors and with only about 12 hours total climbing experience (first 10 hours indoors). No finesse whatsoever, and couldn't do it on the second attempt (too tired and forgot how I'd done it the first time).

According to Rockfax (2001) guide this is "a safe first VS lead". I can only say that there must be some disheartened VS aspirants out there because I felt this route has some very tough moves on fist jams to vercome the bulge. The jug you are aiming for moves alarmingly!

For big folk the trick seems to be to get your right foot as high up the diagonal crack as possible, your left foot somewhere up on the blank wall and then to reach up high in the back of the crack for the jug on the top of the rocking block and then go for it.

Easy start, gets tricky at the overhang half way up. Good central crack for placing gear. Feet must be worked along diagonal crack to right in order to master the overhang. Easy finish.

Brilliant friction day - ie. really cold! One of those climbs that convinces me why I enjoy climbing. Up to crux I was certainly not in the mood; cold, shoes hurting, intimidated. After I made the crux, ecstatic and would not have wanted to be doing anytything else in the world!
