Start was quite committing but fun jamming after that!

Clearly need to work on my jamming, completely shut down on this. managed to work past the first hand crack but struggled to stick the fist jams, and gave up.

Brilliant climb, well protected and great full on jaming! Just so pumpy and energy sapping especially in heat, hense the rests.

Felt harder and bolder than any other HVS I've done before hard moves from the jams and pumpy.

A big bruise was made in the side of my left knee... The starting move was hard, particularly when the crucial hold was wet. A good traditional HVS!

Really good - had to shout. I would guess the start is always slimey. In fact the whole thing is slimey. Wonderful and sustained

Great climbing which is much better than it looks, add this to your wish list! It has a hard start (had to avoid a wet jug) but then climbs like dream on good jams and jugs even if a few of them were a bit wet/slimy in places, and great gear too. Not as hard as I remember on 2nd a few years ago but then trying out tape gloves before probably made it harder (the only time I have). QUALITY :) some one had removed the vegetation out of the crack since I was last here too which probably improved it further as would more traffic on this jamming gem.
