One of my favourite climbs at Goblin. As ever, I'm struck by how much good jamming there is - not just at the crux, but all the way up the easier continuation chimney.

absolutely brilliant, some spice was added by the wet crux - placed absurd amounts of good gear before going for it

Felt harder than some of the Es!

Pulled on a draw. A good climb with a crash-course in hand-jamming.

Don't know why I've never done this one; a surprisingly good climb. Surely worth a star. A full-height climb with a great view from the top. A stiff crux, and lots of easier but enjoyable climbing. Nice hand jams.

Found the crux pretty stiff - probably just my inability to jam... Nice and steep, sustained climbing!

Got stuck at the crux and fell when pulling over the steep wall into the chimney slot - its full of old twigs and branches. Needs cleaning, not recommended.
