16m. One of the Peak's very best jamming cracks, the crag is worth a visit just to do this route. Climb the crack though a host of overhangs! © Rockfax

Up to the lip, failed to commit to the jam and ran out of juice. Hung around abit then abseiled to retrieve gear... :(
I was starting to feel tired and then I met the jams. Who could fall off jams like those? It turns out that Stu had that skill.

A real gnarly route. Had to rest on the rope to remove some cams.
|Andy Peak 1||18/May/14||Lead||

Cool route. The moves up to the bottom of the crack are pretty cool and juggy. But the pull up over the crack felt hard. An intermediate foothold below the lip helped on my successful attempt

Pumped out placing gear at the lip and fell off. Will come back with stronger arms + more determination.
On staff training. Very nice route.

Absolutely brilliant!! Perfect jugs, gear and the bobby dazzler of jamming. Not the beast it looks as the jams are so perfect/easy, it is just fairly steep.

Ouch! photos on here somewhere.

Couldn't get past the crux of that overhanging crack... great jugs up to that point.

Lead on a number of occasions, once with Martin ..... from Huddersfield. Last time left it too late in year and traverse was wet and rested(with Mat Allatt) If it was at Stanage would always be in the mags!
