The Iron Fist*** E5 6b
12m. The stunning, steep crack to the right of 'Velvet Glove'. Apparently hard for the grade.

Finally! Been trying this for a while. Went down surprisingly easily today, although still a good fight.

Felt nails. Got halfway up before I had to admit defeat. Need to get fitter, learn how to jam etc. etc..

awesome route. Easy enough up to the good finger lock, then making the one move up to the top of the finger crack and into the fist is nails! Got it a couple of times, but couldnt move up from it. Another crack to aspire to :D
