Rockfax Description
6m. The diagonal crack gives solid jamming though the nail-like pebbles in the crack are not kind to fingers. © Rockfax

Did this with crack gloves, but couldn't stop to place gear until the niche. Yay, the good old days are back! Glad to get it done, as I've refused to start on at least one previous occasion.

Good little route, hard work, and no option but to jam. They are solid though, and the gear is good.

One of the more pleasant (the only?) cracks at Ramshaw

good route, 2* i think, sustained solid jams for the first few moves, my hands are a state today..! took one fall (slump onto a cam), then returned to ground and led it clean at second attempt
