The 'jug' that you pull up to the jam with felt greasy/warm/polished (insert excuse here). Reckon doing this last meant the wall got warm in the sun. Quick rest on gear, chalk and brush of jug and the move went ok. Didn't actually think this was that good, compared to the other two (sour grapes?). Oh well!

Absolutely shattered! Couldn't make the big move to the dodgy jam. Blame it on illness?
funsized - 2nd dog - 30/Oct/11 with Jake Lloyd
Loved this route, but the crux is very reachy. Likely tech 6a for the short. Soft touch if you're average height though, and aren't afraid of flared jams. Since when have grit jamming routes been overgraded?
Is Yorkshire going soft?

3 ground up goes, made it to the Y each time but found it very difficult to get the jam to stick for the move to the crack. Finally made the move on my 3rd go but fell getting my other hand into the crack through bad footwork. Every bit as good as I expected though, will be back ASAP to finish it off.

Just can't do the crux by jamming.
So instead, left hand pulling on the top of the left fork, right foot high right, left foot on not great foot hold between the cracks then right hand up to below the jam, twist around into a layback, do something with your feet then left hand up into a secure jam.
MeMeMe - 2nd - 06/Jun/11 with Pete
Pumped out at y,lowered off,pulled ropes, tried again,pumped out, rested on gear, managed crux fresh after a rest on rope. Downer.
Phill Mitch - Lead dog - 25/May/11 with mick
awesome route but i put too much gear in it, had to take a rest before the crux move, even then took lots of moving up having a go then coming down again before i finally got it!

Got told to do this when Lisa couldn't make the move out over the roof, wasn't sure if I could either having witnessed Mikes immense span between the good holds leaving me to use poor ones. Up the corner with ease, a really deep mono lets you switch hands. Turn out right, reach up left as far along the roof flake as you can, and then shuffle it along. Eventually got a decent hold, toe hooked and matched it with my right hand. Cut loose and got my feet back on quickly. Swung along a bit more then heel up into the flake. Reached up up the cracks a bit more but had to rest as was really pumped, about the same stage mike got to. Went a bit further up, tried reaching straight up to the jams in the crack far above - too far. Then got some beta from Mike to get a (excruciating) cammed fist jam in the hold just down left of the jamming crack. Then reach up with that, which allowed me to reach a good jam in the crack, I proceeded to plug up as quickly as I could before I ran out of strength, up into the niche. Then the 5 star finish - brilliant. If I had a lot more stamina I could lead this I think.

Couln't reach the Jam first time. Went for it after a quick rest on the gear and it felt fine. Despite not doing it clean feel alot more confident about trad after hardly doing any for a ages. Awesome jamming. Seconded it to get the gear and felt fine. ill be back.
