This was the most challenging wall which I persevered and kept swinging into the crack of the wall. However, I persevered and with the help and encouragement of my belayer, I reached the top trying my utmost hardest to hold onto the walls with limited cracks, and pushing up higher. I secured a great VICTORY after falling and swinging in the CRACK! I was a VICTOR of the CRACK! #VictoryCrack

v. enjoyable climb, though more accurately described as an HS in eastern grit. Had a slighty iffy moment with a less than satisfactory hand jam but otherwise good.

Really enjoyed this and thought it is one of the most under-rated climbs I've ever done it, I would give it 2 stars if not 3! Fantastic hand-jamming moves all the way up from the ledge onwards (getting over the chock is also very fun!). Quite technical for a HS jamming crack but perfect jams all the way up, can put in as much gear as you want and there is one or two bomber threads! Upper section's jams are especially good! Spent almost as long as it took me to fly up it to place the final irrelivent nut! Ohwell! Matt seemed to enjoy it nearly as much as me! But is not as keen on hand-jamming and arrived at the top with super pumped arms! Think I'm really getting the hang of this hand jamming, bring on The File!
