A pretty incredible hand crack, shame my second was too cold to enjoy it as much as me.

ReubenS1990 ?/May/15 Lead O/S

Awesome, awesome climb. Short on suitable sized gear so just stepped up the cams as I climbed.

Really good fun, first proper experience of hand jamming! Small hands are useful for when it widens to fist jam

Superb jamming! Bomb proof jams the entire way! Had some gear issues by the top though as I'd been a bit overzealous and placed to much gear at the bottom so I'd run out of anything that fitted for the last 5-10m

Ace jamming, stick to the crack only..

Ollie B 01/Oct/11 Lead O/S

If you can jam very easy HVS (more like VS) if not, well then its nails. Brill route! slot in the hand jams all the way up.

Brilliant route-easier than it looks with enough positions to rest.Bomber jams- laybacked the mid section.You must keep religously to RH crack to get the HVS tick.Also managed to place 5 cams and 2 hexes !!

EXCELLENT CLIMB! amazing fist jams. I loved it

Pete Nugent 19/Apr/11 Lead O/S

Have not been to C y T before, some excellent routes. I had to "leapfrog" my Camalots 2 & 3 up the crack so that I could be proect the upper section. Better to take a double set &/or larger sizes. (N.Wales Rock, Ground Up 2006) In terms of difficulty, I found: Herfords Crack

Fine jamming, with all four points of contact lined up in the crack for a couple of cruxy moves near the top. My one bit of training for a first visit to Yosemite next month!

Dale ?/Aug/10 Lead dog

Excellent hand and foot jamming all the way up, a nicer angle than I was expecting. Bomber gear, easy to place, more like VS 4c. It's a shame it doesn't go on for longer.

Andrew Barker 24/Jun/10 2nd O/S

Painful foot jamming. Felt tricky so went straight back round to solo it to make sure it was just the painful feet making me climb badly.

As Omer was young and fit, pointing him at cracks was a good way to level the playing field. He couldn't jam at all, so he used laybacks and face-holds to make it look about E3.

The new guidebook clarified where this route went and gave it VS 4b. If Herford did this in 1912 he probably laybacked up it in nailed boots. A steady lead from Dave as we didn't have much gear that would fit this crack.
