On a dank damp November day. Getting out of the first crack was pretty hard. The second crack no pushover either, especially since it started raining. Shoving my feet into the crack seemed to work despite poor friction

Well, I needed practice of Jamming before heading up to climb the old man of hoy and I got it with this. Physically demanding climb if you're not used to jamming. Very happy to have climbed this.

2nd attempt at getting it clean. Better than than the first but still took two goes at the wider crack in the top half of the route.

very tricky for the grade if you're crap at jamming, slipped out of the crack low down, but then climbed it clean after that.Very good lead by Steve!!
Trefo - 2nd dog - 11/Feb/10 with stvredmond

jamming is a tad difficult in those greasy, slippery limestone cracks, though found a good fist jam in the upper crack

Rested in a couple of places.

A superb climb, the main crack is ample for both gear & jamming, there is no need to use another crack off to the side! A firm 5a I think.
