Slippery Jim HVS 5b
8m. The awkward and often rather green groove is squirmed to a rounded exit. The route is not popular, partly because of where it is and partly because it's hard! Usually feels like E1. © ROCKFAX

Hidden - Lead O/S - 03/Nov/14

Very wet and slippery. Good fun though. Top out was a little sketchy. Took one little fall and couldn't be bothered to lower off for a ground-up go since it was so wet in the crack.

12/31. Really enjoyable, a lovely bit of light relief after the crack of gloom.
Nick Russell - 2nd - 21/Jul/14 with Alex Winter

12 on Staffordshire nose. Was wearing my comfy shoes, which had big holes in them. Made the laybacking on this feel more precarious than it needed to.

very wet and dirty
northy1983 - Lead O/S - 2011 with seb

It sure was slipery for the hands, and rather damp in the cracks but quality rock for the feet to bridge all the way to the top. The Top out was quite exiting on lead, theres not a lot for your hands up there and I wouldn't trust that heather!
Andrew Abraham - Lead O/S - 27/Sep/10 with Clement Attwood

A slippery crack tricky bridging and a tricky exit. Good value for its length
monsteratt - 2nd O/S - 26/Sep/10 with Andrew Abraham

Well, it looked in reasonable condition but clearly it wasn't. When does get in condition if not mid July?
