Finally! The right choice for warming-up, as this route is expectedly physical for the whole body! HVS 5a/5b? Good route :-)masa-alpin - Lead O/S - 05/Sep/13 with Simon P

Ian Broome - 2nd β - 12/Jul/13 with Chris
Nails! Although power screams do help.
Pumped solid and just scraped over the top. Harder than Dead Banana Crack?

Dafydd Llywelyn - Lead O/S - 20/Jun/12 with Alex Minshall, Jamie
To get up this I employed a combination of cursing and foul language. Found the jams a bit shit.
cookacat - 2nd O/S - 20/Jun/12 with jamie s, Dafydd
pretty good jams all the way up, but it was little bit dark (after 2200) so face holds were a little tricky to spot. bit grubby in the back of the crack but nothing too unpleasant. great route :)

I thought i could climb e1, i thought i could jam. damn this was hard.
catblack - 2nd dog - 19/Jul/11 with Si
Excellent crack climbing, a bit burly in places and stiff for E1. One of the best grit jamming cracks is actually not on grit! Grond on the Cromlech is another one like that.
Misha - Lead O/S - 18/Jun/11 with Mike T
Mowglee - AltLd dog - 28/May/11 with Tom Nichols
a traditional climb for sure, wide cracks are not my thing and neither is dogging my way up routes so when i slumped onto gear i just lowered off. One to get back on when my jamming has improved!
Dan Lane - Lead dnf - 22/May/11 with Laurie Carefoot
Tough, rested just before the wide crack. Pumped silly at the top and ran out of decent gear. Ace.

mega pumpy and quite sustained at E1!! despite good gear and holds all the way. Was way harder than Minus Ten that we climbed in mistake for this before hand!
