12m. The steep crack with the odd holds on the arete will test your jamming technique. The groove above has a tricky exit. © Rockfax

found this to be quite tough, probably because I didn't do any jamming at all and mainly stuck to the arÍte. Some nice moves though.

I just didn't like this climb and so down climbed. It just freaked me a bit for some reason. Maybe it's because I'm still just not that much a fan of jamming. Will come back to it when I have improved my grade, but doubt I'll ever enjoy it!

Started up Little Pillar but the jamming crack was so enticing that I finished up that instead! Went back for Little Pillar later.

Steep, too tired and pumped so decided better of committing to the upper crack. Next time when more sleep I'll nail it!

HS 4b if you can jam. HVS 5a if you can't. I can't. Tried to learn on the job, but just couldn't figure out how to make them feel secure. Thrutched my way up instead. An easy one to learn the skills on though, might have to come back and do it properly.

Great line- pleasant jamming and holds on arete- plenty of good gear placements- but hanging around to place it is energy sapping.

Pumpy for HS but those who think it is VS are either awful at jamming or don't own cams. Can put protection in wherever you want, quite pumpy doing it though as it is suprisingly steep. Spent 5 mins trying to get a nut I got stuck on the first few moves out. Went up, a few hand-jamming moves (hands were a little small) and plenty of nice juggy holds on the face/arete to ease things a little. Then a nice suprise. Top is interesting! Just when you think its all over!
