Jasper* HVS 4c
33m, 2 pitches. Two very different pitches - the first strenuous and the second more balancy and requiring good route finding. Possibly best climbed as a single pitch. 1) 4c, 15m. Climb the right-hand side of the massive block and then move left to ascend a crack to an awkward belay at the fault-line. 2) 4b, 18m. Surmount a bulge and trend rightwards past a ledge and small corner to another smaller ledge. Exit to the left of a small roof at the top. © ROCKFAX

Dave Thompson - Lead - 10/Sep/14 with Mark Lee

Led all in one pitch.'Interesting'. Awkward seems to be the theme here. Difficult getting into the groove/crack. Not much in the way of elegant climbing, mostly thuggy or thrutchy. First taste of the Ruckle, didn't leave me wanting more! Tough at 4c, felt more HVS 5a. Well protected, not bold (fortunately).

Found getting off the block into the overhanging crack very tricky. More difficult than 4c, surely.

Tried to lead the first pitch but was repelled after several failed attempts to get into the corner above the break. After half an hour I backed off and let Ramon lead both pitches. Route finding on the second pitch was difficult and we went far right but where the going was precarious. We we later told that going left was the easier way.
