Decent crack climbing, when you commit to the jams. Took a slip and dropped onto a ledge, didn't weight the rope though. Jammed instead of laying back to the top.

I'm good at climbing cracks and finger / hand jamming (both of which can be utilized here) and this one felt F6a to me. The pollish on this route is certainly making it harder for the fingers and feet. The second bolt is slightly too high meaning it had to be clipped from a very uncomfortable position. With the pollish only a 1 star route now!

Really loved this climb! The crack was a little wet, so a little nerve wrecking, but great foot holds to rock over if you find them. A nice one for short climbers!

Katie and Alex hated it, I loved it! A bit sweaty to be finger locking but was good, pretty pumpy for a 5 though! By the time you get to the top! Actually found the hardest moves the top of the crack when your reaching for other holds.
