Nursery Crack VS 5b

Rockfax Description
Tough to grade (it was Diff for years) and tougher to climb. Jamming is the traditional and torrid approach, laybacking is a more modern way of doing it. Monster cams are sensible. © ROCKFAX

Given HVS 6a in the BMC guide. I think this might have something to do with the suggestion that you climb the entire thing by burying yurself in the crack. We did this for the first couple of moves then resorted to laybacking.
