A monumental off-width battle, which you're probably climbing the wrong way. The grade is meaningless for most people. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A desperate off-width which is hard work but strangely enjoyable!

Couple goes on a top rope to figure things out first. Solid fist jams at the back of the crack and a bit of udging is all it takes. Actually found it pretty enjoyable

Good fun, crack practice whilst top-roped - with an unnecessary but pleasing no hands rest.

Bit of an adventure! Managed to jam most of my body in the crack and shimmy up, then went straight through the bush further up. Great fun!

fluffed the sequence - think I could do it now I've found as easier way of doing this climb.

forgot the moves but found them not too bad this time (once i found the bomber fist jam at the start of the main crack). Still think this is 5b!

Absolutely not 5a and for me not an offwidth either climbed on spaced fist jams some quite deep in the crack. Happy to get this one clean and high in the grade 5b IMO.

Really satisfying as loads of people reckon it's very hard despite being only a 5a. Did without any issues but it deffo felt quite tough, maybe tougher than perspiration which is a 5c!

Probably the most satisfying route of the day. A real jamming test-piece!
