[Unkown climber on Jelly Baby., 2 kb]7m.

Rockfax Description
Wobble up the narrow leaning groove. It is technical but sadly it is also escapable. An attractive line but a disappointing climb. © ROCKFAX

Looks nice a nice line from below, but staying only on the crack can't be E1 5c (Rockfax). Used the occasional ledge to the right and got back on the crack to make upwards progress. Not recommended.

Just tried the crack - hard!

Definitely no easier than E1 5c with the use of the right arete. found this nails!
Calum Wadsworth - Lead O/S - 27/Nov/13 with micki

Tried to do it as a lead, but gave up after placing one bit of gear. Seconded it then, but still really hard. Definitely not HVS.

Not really, used the ledges on the slab on the right. Guide says E1 5c, would be nails to only use the crack.

Only did about two crack moves, cheated shamelessly on the rest.

I've yet to fail to onsight a 5c crack but I couldn't do this at 5b (apparently!)I got a high cam in from the ground, had quite a few goes at the start and down climbed many times. Then gave it full commitment and ended up slapping the sloping jug on the right(off route). Even slapping that sloping hold felt like 6a so I guess sticking to the route might be 6b. All felt a bit silly really
martroberts - Lead dnf - 22/Sep/12

The move at the lower half to reach the break was very hard without touching the arete - I felt it to be 6a/6b (for my height). I didn't fall but in the end I climbed down to the ground and gave up. I spotted a chipped scar - did it used to be a decent finger hold, possibly? Then the grade would make more sense.
masa-alpin - Lead dnf - 10/Jun/12 with Lee P

Hard not to step on and off route. I ran out of steam placing gear but very attractive line.
helenstuart - Lead dog - 06/May/12 with Mike

Think I had wee lean on the rope! Felt desperate and blinkers required to stay on route.

Seemed daft not to use the odd hold on Face Climb No.2.

Found this desperate! Can you use the arete and ledges on the next route? Either way it's still tough. The loud snapping sound my ankle made while climbing put me off slightly (at which point I probably should've stopped)

gets E1 5c in the rockfax guide - might be a bit too protected for E1 (peg scars take small nuts/microwires) but consistant stiff 5B moves and pumpy when placing gear. easily escapable on the right tho :(
