The Wriggler HS 4b

Rockfax Description
6m. The twisting crack in the left-hand side of the buttress is as awkward as it looks - and the name tells a tale. A very 'traditional' Hard Severe from the days when men were men! © ROCKFAX

Thought my gut would be the issue in getting intae the crack, but no, I couldnae even get my chest in there, struggled aboot fur a bit then gave up. Deb's back 'n fannyin technique seemed tae werk wonders.

How can such a short route be such a battle? Started out as a lead. Thought I was making slow but steady progress, wiggling up the crack until I came a stop. Got my knee stuck and was hanging around for a good 15mins by just my knee and a chicken wing trying to find a safe way to get to the top. The only way to do it was to push my knee downwards, climb out of the crack and yank my leg outwards to free it. Something I didn't feel like doing without any gear so had a TR lowered - Epic....

Seconded after convincing Charley it was worth leading. Shorter than I remembered and found it easier second time round. Hahahha...."from the days when men were men" Charley!!!! :D

Tithe Technique - 2nd dog - 22/Oct/11 with Angela Paul

What an awkward climb!! The name really does say it all...make sure you wear elbow pads for those lovely only just off-width arm bars!

Should I have put solo? I tied on but couldn't place any gear so dragged the rope up! Alex flew up it and managed to test my belaying speed!
