Fist jamming makes the footwork higher and easier. Corking route.

Frozen fingers! Didn't jam but would definitely help. OK on second without doing so. Good route #3rdgritroute

Made a right mess of this. Was going to try Good Friday, tried the crux move and then backed off to Ellis' Eliminate. Unfortunately my ropes weren't managed for a big traverse. Super pumped after rearranging ropes and dogged up it. A real shame because I'm sure I'd have enjoyed it otherwise!

My jams weren't quite up to scratch, and got pumped out placing gear, powered on through and somehow slipped off, trailing blood everywhere. Had a rest and climbed the rest of the route easily... I'll be back.

Didn't quite appreciate I was supposed to jam the traverse, so just open-handed along. Seemed to work OK. Got my hands the wrong way around for the pull onto the arete though. Finished up the slightly harder right hand crack at the top. Chris lead.

Wicked. Footless traverse but solid hands, easy finish, the only tricky move is the step up on the far right of the traverse, easiest done by finding a far back right handhold and getting your right foot over your ear.

Good fun. The gear i got in before the traverse wasn't quite as good or as far to the right as I'd jave liked, but the travers turned out to be okay (exciting). You can get 'bomber' gear on the nose. Unfortunately, after that its very easy all the way to the top.

Cams are good to have on this climb, and we did not have enough. Ed ran out the entire traverse on one cam at the beginning. If you go up right before the nose, you get a few 5a moves which are funner than the juggy arette, but would probably have stuck to the easier option on lead.

Great route! Leaders with nervous seconds may want to pull one rope once the belay is reached and drop down again for your partner - that way the second will have a rope from abaove for the whole traverse (Similar tactics for Valc @ Roaches)

wild_nomad 04/Oct/09 Lead O/S

An easy and well protected climb up the crack but it's all about the traverse! Pumpy hand jams and very little for feet till you get to the nose. I placed some gear at the start then went for it in one hit without putting any runners for the remainder of the traverse which is pretty exposed. Things got easier after this although gear is sparse till higher up. With this method if you fall at the nose you'll hit the deck! Cams are useful on this climb.

One of my favourite routes of all time! It's intimidating stepping out right when there is clearly a lack in footholds, but you soon come to realise there are hundreds of completely sinker jams! Climbing in just shorts it felt amazing! Stopped to place a cam nearing the end on a bomber jam, then move out right, whip foot around right onto corner and move around. Climb the easy arete, then I decided to take a harder alternative finish just to the right, probably 4c if not 5a, up a thin crack with a couple of kind of finger jams. Loved it, beautiful day beautiful route, will be remembered!

Exciting. Very easy for VS. I found the crux was getting onto the Arete.

Have procrastinated around this route on a previous occasion but 'felt right' yesterday so went for it. Bit of gear in the starting crack, Friend 2.5 in the LH end of the break and then just jam along it keeping feet high in the little crease. Beautiful and didn't feel the need for any other gear until I was on the arete. You could probably do it without jamming but why would you? A good jam is the best hold there is! The arete is fun, well protected and the finishing move spectacular on huge holds (look down from there - it's a straight drop!).

Fell off on the lead. Hung around too long trying to work out how to hand jam. I didn't work it out but I did get tired trying.

By ignoring any jamming it was fine but I know that's not the point! So i'll be going back for this one....

Attempted lead. Went for the final move towards the arete and stupidly took out a perfectly good jam! Fell shortly afterwards. Seconded in the end.
