HS only if you're tall. Protection is tenuous.

One of the more ungradable routes I have ever done. Not one I'll be rushing back to do but I can see how some must love this sort of thrutching stuff. Like the book says, "deeply traditional"!

Choose to layback the massive crack rather than jam.

Couldnt see how this would go on point but breezed up with the comfort of a top rope - more confidence needed !

THRUTCH! Got stuck in, suprisingly good fun and the pies and beer helped with the full body jam

Awesome fun! Did it proper offwidth style, exhausting! Slotted in just about into the crack, wiggled my way up to the holds and jammed myself in to place gear, wriggled up a bit more, reached up and left for the hold, swung out onto this, jammed my cammed leg in and placed more gear, and finished off with fist jams! Clean good fun, with a dirty twist!!

Uurgh! Love the initial precarious grunting (I don't quite fit in the crack, so it feels pretty bold). Top section is lovely in a different way. Dave cheated like a big girl and did some nimble face climbing to start... and totally missed the point!

Faced the wrong way first attempt and couldn't turn round to reach the holds, down-"climbed", then did it the right way round. Well worth not wearing a helmet!

Lost my bottle at the top of the offwith because of no gear placement and a horrible landing.
