No jamming required (unless you've got hands the size of boulders). Scurried up the right hand move onto the ledge!

one of the few things climbable on the crag when we arrived - and still wet slimy and disgusting towards the top. probably a pleasant solo in good conditions

really difficult getting onto the ledge. Glad I didn't lead it, would have been terrified! Good fun as a second though
pippa_g - 2nd O/S - Sep/10 with Graeme

The rock-over right from the crack to the ledges seemed a bit steep for VD but meant it was a thoroughly enjoyable climb :)

At least HVD. The move right out of the initial crack and onto the ledge is about 4b, and that's if you're tall like me!

Felt much easier than Woodentops to the left, some lovely jams and then an awkward exit.

adam carless - Solo O/S - 19/Apr/09

Really nice solo, up a short loverly jamming crack, quick rest then I read it slightly wrong and tried going straight up and over which led me into a tricky move, eventually figured I had to shuffle right which is where the route is supposed to go. Was raining a bit at this point!
