Getting into the overhanging leaning layback position always seems hard even after numerous ascents. A Harrison's classic

lovely crack climb - remember to stick to the right and work up with a lean back to the left

5th try spread over a few months. Happy to put this to rest, sad I now have to find a new project :( Amazing climbing, one of the best at Harries. Happy that I'm starting to get a collection of 5c climbs under my belt. Personally I would give this 5c+ 3*. If anyone wants beta for the handjams, left and then right works a treat :)

not quite completly dry (inside of crack and odd foot hold despite 2 weeks of dry weather). I think this one will go without using the slim parts of the crack on hand jams and holds. Also looks like it will go without the need to layback on finger jams.

A really good attempt at this route which has escaped Tom for 19 years. Rope took weight once on crux mid crack but a clean assent otherwise. Cleaner than some of the easier graded routes done this day.
