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

Didn't bring enough cams or hexes to downclimbed to retrieve previous cams. What faff.

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

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 !!

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)

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!
Andy Clarke - Lead O/S - 16/Aug/10 with Ralph
more yosmite training bit slippy inside, slips couple of times. should of had it but rested a a few seconds cus cudn't figure out how to move my foot up. Guess i'm getting bit better at jamming.

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.
catblack - Lead O/S - 24/Jun/10 with Andy Barker
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.
Andrew Barker - 2nd O/S - 24/Jun/10 with Cat Black
