Rockfax Description
The left-hand crack is a mild and short test of fist-jamming. Thought by some to be the hardest of the three, though it isn't. © Rockfax

r8ck_chick 7 Apr Lead dog Fell off going into crux. Doh! Um. Of course I'll say it's harder than the other two, I've only seconded right and that was hard but this was a mammoth battle. Didn't help that my hand started bleeding half way up. I am now covered in bruises and I wouldn't want it any other way. If it doesn't hurt, you're doing it wrong! Boy I love grit stone :D
