Absolutely brilliant route, tricky to move into the crack, and them bomber jams all the way to the top after that!

Without numb hands this time, and it feels a bit more like 5a. :)

So so good. Pumpy bottom section, and probably impossible if you have normal sized hands.

Hard. Feels like 5b to me. Not the best choice of warm-up, got a flash pump, and hot aches at the top (cold for August!!!).

came off and had a couple of rests on the rop at the bottom of the crack. Lower section of the crack was a little green and damp. Crack above was lovely.

Got really pumped pulling round the corner and couldn't get a jam to stick, slipped off. Finished it after a rest. Lovely, must come back and get clean.

On jamie's gear - i had previously attempted but missed the crucial foot beta and tried to make it a lot harder for myself.. today it was very very easy probably because we'd been bouldering and so the hold felt huge!

jkarran 16/Aug/10 Lead

Not what I was expecting but good none the less. Quite tough really and it's easy to make life hard for yourself.

great route, down cllmbed for a rest after pacing gear, would better in boots that didn't fall apart mid-route. one to do again soon

Two rests after failing to spot footholds and pumping out. Stunning route - must come back and get up it cleanly.

Really nice route with a distinct variation in climbing style between the start of the route and the crack. Backed off the lower crack as it was wet (OK, dmap), lowered off my gear and went ground up. Take a couple of #3 friends (#2 Camalots), if you'd rather not run out the top of the crack. Gulp!

Great route. Not worth the 5b, and probably not the top-end HVS in the graded list that it gets in the new rockfax. There are about 4 5a moves though and the bottom half is pumpy, and the start of the crack would be desperate if you couldnt jam. Mid-high HVS 5a maybe. Superb route.
