Rockfax Description
12m. The best of the quartet gives classic jamming/laybacking (quite steep but fine once you commit to the moves) to a rest on a ledge on the left, and then more of the same to the top. It's a relief to find that the exit is reasonably straightforward. © Rockfax

Suckered into doing this by the VD grade in my 1990 logbook (is this the biggest sandbag in Yorkshire Gritstone). A fine combination of laybacks, jams (hand and foot) and the "swimming pool finish" noted by others. It is worth a VS because there's no real rest until you're over half way. 4b? Probably. 2 stars? Definitely.

Brilliant climb! Probably my favourite of the day, everything flowed really well and I felt absolutely bomber in every situation. It helped that I have quite large hands so my fists just slotted in so easily it felt like severe! Was plugging up over and over again with jams I could quite literally lean back off without a worry, then into hand-jams which were the same and fantastic moves. The top turned out to be a bit of a struggle but managed to udge my way through it! Good effort to Lisa leading it after with tiny hands! Thought I was sure to sandbag her this time :p

Top-out the crux. The rest was easy (4a-4b) if you jam it. There were a bunch of people faffing around laybacking the middle bit and finding it hard - fools :)

Highball really, fell from quite high and landed on a handy mat someone had placed nearby. does it really deserve a Trad grade?

Rob lead and climbed well. I completely bundled it mainly due to poor confidence in attacking with the right technique. Once I did get the technique right I was very tired. Just about completed it with lots of rests and falls.

Mostly needs fist jams to climb this one and my fist is just too small. Got half way up before admitting defeat. Will definatly try this one again though.
