Central Crack** VS 5a
[Thutch-tastic Central Crack , 3 kb]12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The crack starts from a sentry box and gives good climbing to a naughty finish up the widening and undercut crack. It is possible to avoid the last few moves by traversing the break leftwards to give a one star HS 4b. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Steady climbing to the last ledge to where a thrutch up the final crack awaits. A lot of parties move off sideways here at 4b. Large cam useful for that last crux section.

Pre 1957, possibly the E.Y.M.C.

The Top out is a bit of a monster, jamming with your right hand and going up using the face left of the crack for footholds felt like it would be 5c, jamming with your left hand felt more like hard 4c or 5a. For someone with little jamming experience this was a rather harrowing experience with a massive cam, would have been horrific without. A 3 star experience of fist jamming!

Failed to wriggle up the top crack, knocked out my own gear then fell off - fortunately the hex below was good. Went back up but traversed out right and finished up right hand crack. Bit of a mission.

Memorable. Awkward start, lovely main section and then offwidth thrashing causing skin loss. Great stuff. The finish reminded me of Tom Randall saying of Pete Whittaker 'I couldn't work out why he got up things that I couldn't get up. Then I tried really hard, got up them and realised that that's what he did, first time, every time' (or words to that effect).

I was really enjoying this route and had no problems with any of the moves...until the top out. It also started pouring down with rain which made trying to jam my right arm into the crack impossible. I felt so of balance trying to get my feet high and my hands up and over the boulder that I gave up in the end. And then it stopped raining.

cant claim clean as a small tumble on the final top out, but I'm not calling it a dog! god it was hard though. took numerous attempts and (mostly) downclimbs to work out the sequence that worked for me. Then once got final bomber fist jam and hand on break had to hang there to recover sufficient strength to finish and pull up - and anothe minute to recover suffiecient breath to call 'safe'.;-D
pebbles - Lead - 24/Aug/10 with will smith

I didn't find the bottom bit trivial as my hands seemed the wrong size to get decent jams. Top out is ridiculous though! Anything elegant seems doomed to failure. In the end it was a combination of a tenuous fist jam and udging with my knee which worked.
