Slumped trying to move into bottom of the crack. Crack was awkward hand jam, but fine for feet.

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.

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