Rockfax Description
(The Skier) The striking crackline in the sidewall is very photogenic. It is easily ticked when descending from having done one of the longer routes on the front of the cliff. Some jamming is required low down, followed by hauling on jugs as the route gets steeper, leading to a tricky section passing the roof. © Rockfax

Lead it with Roz seconding after she decided she didn't want to do it. Slightly wet. The awesome jamming crack doesn't actually require much jamming. Great jug hauling after - ace route.

Pretty reachy for the short particularly when a lot of the crack is wet! Sustained.

good moves and a bit of a jug fest, especially if you can lank it past the wet jamming crack like me!

Fantastic. Crack was sopping wet but that only affected 2 moves where you have to jam, the rest was just fun jug hauling!

Peviously seconded in August 2002 with Jim and Jussi. felt much easier thankfully this time. As ali says i thought probably HVS 5a and safe at that, i've led harder VS's in my time! Theres a jug within reach every 2 ft or so although the bottom move would be dificult if you can't jam!

Agree with below, HVS 5a for sure, all holds are huge and even the jamming section is very short lived. Good though...
