Rockfax Description
The right-hand crack is high in the grade. The disappointingly thin lower section gives a few very technical moves, before the respite of the wider crack above, which is solid HVS jamming.

Hard! Not a warm up!!! Got a flash pump after getting gear into the thin crack, the first pocket was as far as I got and it was rubbish, the main issue though was that I couldn't get my left foot established on anything decent (lots of polished smears). Fell off three times then gave up as it was an evening session so time was precious. One to come back to.

Had two falls on the same move, on the second my cam ripped so I gave it one more go... managed to get up it clean after but I found the crack a good jamming lesson, and I think my inexperience showed quite a lot...
