seconded this years ago and found it very hard. slightly easier today with more proficiency in jamming, was spurred on by the grim midgery below :p

After getting spanked on this a few years back good to see some progression. Easier going this time. Still strenuous. Thumbs down to the twat who shat in the 'cave'.

Part of the Roaches HVS challenge. We got the silver medal, then it went dark on us after skyline. All routes attempted on-sight. Fun day! Thanks Dan and Flavio!

Nice. Probably harder than the sloth. Good fist jams over the lip then grovel!

Practice for the sloth? I found this substantially harder! The jams do go in nicely at the roof though
