Hard HVS for fellow grit monkeys, easy E2 if you are a reasonable jammer and probably impossible if you aren't.

My good run of managing to second Tom's jamming routes despite a total inability to jam properly comes to an end! Fell off trying to jam the thin hands section at the bottom and annoyingly my foot slipped right up near the top too.

Awesome jamming crack. Fairly soft for E2? A tricky bit in the middle where the crack got a bit wide but otherwise it was more like Peak HVS?
I had to shunt cams almost all the way up as only had 2 that fitted 90% of it.

Sweaty and painful and that was just the first few metres, beat a retreat. Can't see how this is E1! I'll be back with taped hands and cooler conditions...

Was i mysteriously transported to Indian Creek? Hot sunshine and spitter cracks! Proper old school jamming fest, crushed by a confused mixture of classy technique and gruelling determination :)

The very best hand jamming corner crack in the UK. As i pulled onto the ledge and saw the corner in all its glory i remember finding it hard to swallow!! However, as with most climbs on the Cromlech its bark was muck bigger than its bite. Shame it's not twice as long. Some guy in Joe Browns shop told me it has been down graded to E1? It felt pretty E2 to me.

Didn't think I'd get up this clean so very pleased! The first half of the route provided the hardest jamming I had ever done but managed to keep going to the rest, after which the going got easier thanks to decent footholds on the side walls. Unloaded a double set of #1 to #3 cams in row, plus a hex at head height and the chockstone at the top, so pretty well protected.

Massively strenuous and technical. Was doing OK with the jamming and bridging until the crack widened. I didn't manage to master the arm jamming technique. Still, good strength training exercise!
