Rockfax Description
The superb finger- and hand-crack that splits the centre of the wall is an essential Peak tick! The knuckle-cracking start is well protected and leads to easier but excellent climbing above. © Rockfax

Had a false start at the bottom, my fingers are a little too small to give secure locks - feels a little insecure first couple of moves. Was surprised at how sustained it is above. Grading is spot on, but it is high in the grade. Class route that deserves its 3 stars

First clean HVS. Slip at the start put me back on the ground, but then continued to complete the whole route clean. Extremely pumped by the end, I felt like I was going to fall off any second for most of the second half on the climb.

Still somehow slightly damp at the start after all the heat. Maybe from condensation. (Fall pipe looks very grotty but perhaps just needs traffic so can’t complain having decided to do Zapple again instead.)

Nice lead by Jack! Conditions were really piss poor - really humid, midgey, the face was wet and the crack was slimy & muddy through the crux.. Didn't climb it well on my first attempt, was trying to rush it too much to miss out moves. Got to the section where the uniform sized crack is but was way to slimy to get a solid jam, don't think it helped much that there was a cam in the way. Got lowered down so Kev could have a go. Took my time on my 2nd go and climbed it properly, still felt a bit desperate getting past the really slimy section. Couldn't get a jam to stick, so ended up doing a dyno jam higher up. Worthy of it's stars though as enjoyed it even though we really shouldn't of in those conditions...

Jackwd 20/Jun/15 Lead O/S

Less than ideal conditions, drizzly, humid, slimy, midgey, muddy and wet. Probably solid HVS in nice conditions and when it's not slimy. Felt hard for the grade today.
