A desperate offwidth for those with small hands or spaced fist jamming for the rest. Hard work!

forgot the moves but found them not too bad this time (once i found the bomber fist jam at the start of the main crack). Still think this is 5b!

Messy
OliMcNeillis - TR O/S - 02/Jun/11

Absolutely not 5a and for me not an offwidth either climbed on spaced fist jams some quite deep in the crack. Happy to get this one clean and high in the grade 5b IMO.

Really satisfying as loads of people reckon it's very hard despite being only a 5a. Did without any issues but it deffo felt quite tough, maybe tougher than perspiration which is a 5c!

Probably the most satisfying route of the day. A real jamming test-piece!
