[Getting to the Crux of "Strawberry Jam"., 3 kb]17m. 13th route. The obvious right hand crackline in the central main face.
10 bolts to lower off

Two loose rocks on strawberry jam that have been marked with an X if it has not washed off. ( On is on the higher arete section after the crux and the other is the block under the chains!)

1st red point, nice route but no need for jamming.

1st RP today after equipping clip to clip. Just followed the line of bolts, didn't have to think about wandering off route really...

Another work session with a couple of RP attempts. Repeated many times so gaining some muscle memory and everything starting to feel easier. Also better understanding of clipping positions, many are better left later. Such nice moves. Soon, I think.
J1_TOV - Lead dog - 04/Jun/15

A good climb. Feels slightly contrived by the proximity of the route to the left but still very good and on grade in my opinion.

Finally made it on 3rd attempt of the evening.

Worked and wired. If I can get back soon it'll go.

Giles Davis - TR dog - 17/May/14 with Rob & Sara, Anita Davis

The left hand variation - my first 7b.

Giles Davis - TR dog - 03/May/14 with Rob & Sara, Anita Davis

Well, got the moves of a sort. Most of the crucial holds leading up to the first crux (layback, high right foot and flag) were soaking. The moves above this were difficult as well. Will take some working on but I think it will go (so much harder than anything I've Red Pointed previously).

yan hawkins - Lead RP - 08/Apr/14 with spacetourist

The pockets before the crux were soaking. Did all the hard moves in one link but had to stop to dry one hold before the crux move which had a constant stream of water runnikng into it!

slugger5uk - Lead dnf - 16/Mar/14

The left hand of the 3 variants. 7b/+. Good fun.
Jon_Warner - Lead RP - 15/Mar/14 with Jenni

Finally sent with Ben putting the clips in. Did the version going out left. Then we worked the moves for staying just in the crack. Finger locking and hand jamming in South Wales who would have thought it! It will go...

Wow, the crux on this felt hard. Eliminate? Nice route though and one to come back to.
Jon_Warner - Lead dog - 29/Jun/13 with Tom

Took a while to work out cru sequence as couldn't do it how I did previously. Linked from beneath crux to top in one go second time.

1 fall on top wall. Some fatty has pulled off the good flake on the top wall right of the crack ;). Used a small tip jam instead. (still managed to avoid the hand mangling flared jam I used on the F.A.)

guy xavier percival - Lead RP - 22/Feb/13 with paul

Only 2 rests on this great route!
SamStokes - TR dog - 14/Sep/12 with Kris Manning

Got through the crux this time without too much difficultly just need to get a bit fitter.
monsteratt - Lead dog - 06/Aug/12 with Nick Whimster

Just about worked out the crux move now I think, although may need some refining.
monsteratt - Lead dog - 30/May/12 with Nick Whimster

Enjoyed this. Didn't manage to work the crux move properly got the rest though with one mistake/rest. Some good screaming on this one!
monsteratt - Lead dog - 20/May/12 with Will Kilner

SamStokes - TR dog - 30/Mar/12 with Ben Matthews

second go
Wendy - Lead RP - 04/Sep/11 with Tom Ball, Mike Coles

Hidden - Lead RP - 04/Sep/11

In light rain with some damp holds. Good sequences. Probably Fr7b+ if you avoid the holds on the route to the left.
goi.ashmore - Lead RP - 10/Jun/11 with Roy Thomas

Hidden - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/11

1st redpoint after tring briefly a while ago, found a good sequence and managed to get up it in pretty much torrential rain, soft?
BenNorman - Lead RP - 22/May/11

Nicola - 2nd dnf - 03/May/11 with Piers

not sure that in the upper part it was the right way to do the route, but anyway the crux was really nice:)
Iskander - Lead RP - 17/Apr/11 with Rob

Nicola - TR dnf - 13/Mar/11 with Jess

Made the crux would need to practice upper section.
marcduhig - TR dnf - 13/Mar/11 with Stewart

Herron - TR dnf - 26/Sep/10 with Steph, Suzanne Richards, Shane Underwood

1st redpoint. Cool moves, quality little route
Glyn - Lead RP - 26/Jun/10 with Amy

will have to come back for this, great route!
tombeasley - TR dog - 19/Jun/10

Spacetourist - Lead RP - 2010 with Jake Day, Rosea, Ed Heslam

Good moves on good rock with sustained interest to the top; much more varied than typical sandstone crimp pulling; deserves a couple of stars in my opinion. Those that voted "Bag of.." can't have climbed it.
