valentinesbabe 1 Apr, 2014 Lead O/S This should have felt easy to me but I just felt out of sorts which is soooo unusual on a perfectly sized handjamming crack!! However once on it it was absolutely fine until I got my elbow stuck in the top of the crack whilst placing gear for the traverse which was a really hairy moment as if I'd come off I'd have broken my arm for sure. However all went well and the layback along the flake is so easy it's a joy then the chimney is just laughable...I'd recommend not carrying much gear ;-) I'm not sure where the 4c move in the guidebook was meant to be but if you're a proficient jammer I couldn't give it more than hard 4a/easy 4b as the crack is lovely and the rest is mega easy.

wahniel 9 Nov, 2006 Lead RP phwoar! I failed to get up this previously! The start is fierce, painful jamming on polished rock. Even with improved jamming technique I'd still give it VS 5c. Try for yourself.

Simon Caldwell 25 Apr, 2006 Lead Rested on 1st piece of gear, which I'd placed from the ground! How silly. And a little annoying. Harder than 4b though, but still probably Severe as the tricky bit is getting off the ground.
