Jams Crwca - Lead dnf - 18/Sep/10 with themadbrown

Another route chosen for shade, but not reaching expectations of quality. Dirty, dusty, messy, thuggy and ungainly struggling on alternating slimey and glassy holds throughout. Probably easier than the Severe next to it mind!

bit of a grotty route
Shauna - 2nd O/S - 15/Aug/09 with Steve

We didn't have high expectations of this pitch as it's so close to the descent and must get done a lot. But it was really good, and surprisingly unpolished.
