<< Monster Race
 
Ron Hill Variation >>
The right-hand crack-system continues the theme of excellence Start at a slight bulge with a good jug above it. 21m. Pull onto the wall using the jug and continue to the overlap. Pull through the overlap and take the long crack to finish. © ROCKFAX
Strenuous pull up to ledge then straight to overlap highest point; get feet up high with smears to make the overlap without difficulty and then straight up to obvious belay using old 'tat'

Foot slipped making the overlap move and took a short fall held by small wires on the lip. It went second go. Bit of a one move wonder really but the move is awkward!

Jelly Mould Surfer - Lead rpt - 15/Jul/12

Joel Perkin - 2nd O/S - 19/May/12 with Dad

One hard move, my feet kept breaking free as I tried to step over the overlap. Well protected with small wires. Severe 5b?

Bit sketchy. Quite awkward moves over the overhang - have to trust friction! Glad I managed not to fall off.
col3 - 2nd O/S - 18/Aug/11 with Nick, Paul

we thought that it was a Severe. Felt harder than little dribbler (HVS 5a) but well protected.
