A little bit of the states on the moors. Nice.
Rich Kirby - Lead O/S - 05/May/14 with Helen

Starting from the left took a couple of goes, 6a? Excellent jamming once established in the crack.

much harder than gommorah. 6a start. lots of jamming
Mattyk - 2nd O/S - 15/Sep/12 with Julie, Andy Hobson

Came in from the right as the direct start seems desperately reachy. Still pretty hard work - E1 5c as per Over the Moors seems right.

Slimey green smears at the start

Brutal jamming crack, which gets more desperate with height. I like to think i can jam, but this is a tester!!!!
