Bit easier this time.

Nice bit of jamming. Crack got a little slimy at one point though.
Calum Wadsworth - Lead O/S - 23/Jul/14 with Matt F
Dampness and lack of biggish cams led to retreat. Failure however doesn't rub out my insight last year.

Crux is moving feet up out of the pea pod. Great jams to the top.

Equally pumpy as it is classic, the final crack really taught me how to hand jam. . .

Spat out like a load of flem!

Utterely, utterly superb, one of the best routes in the county let alone the moors. Only just got it clean.
freemanTom - Lead - 28/Aug/12 with Ben Pearce
Brutal... the route won at a canter! One day i'll learn how to jam!

Glad to have cams otherwise very unprotected without the friends. good moves but sustained after early rest. Need to improve endurance to get the flash.

First climb in nearly 3 weeks. Getting out the niche was quite awkward, then horizontal crack is a OK rest, which allows you to jam up the final crack to the nice pockets.
Great line, shame theres only a view at the very top! 5b?
(Note, there are no rumours about 'fallen blocks', i've spoken to the chap that levered the unsafe block out, and when in place it was easier!)

A great line, but absolutely brutal. From exiting the niche to the top is one long nightmare of pulling on dubious jams with little for your feet and never a comfortable rest. I would need to be a lot stronger to get up this cleanly.
Will Smith - 2nd dog - 22/Jul/08 with Rob
spanked - solid 5b, slippery and hard. Strenuous but safe as house and awkward. Slumped onto bottom cam, getting out of the niche is well hard.
