Rockfax Description
An entertaining test in jamming. Hand jam to a good ledge and finish up the short flared crack above. High in the grade. © Rockfax

I hadn't led it before. Greasy.

Seconded this after leading where I struggled at the crux, took a fall that ripped out 2 friends and a hex and landed on the ground - happily with no ill effects and went on the second. Leader thought it was harder than Whim!

Very cold rock (it'd been freezing overnight) made this very difficult: couldn't feel anything, which included: holds, toes, fingers!

well protected on crux crack- can be climbed without jamming- just use holds on either side of crack.Nice route in a fine position.

Many tries but couldn't quite commit to last hand jam. Well mangled hands!
