12m. An awkward narrowing fissure shrinks from a thin chimney to a wide crack. Once the good jams arrive, things ease. © Rockfax

Thought it was about time I put a harness on after just being a boulderer these days, HS 4b? Ha ha ha, that’s a good one, would get HVS5a most places except in the county!

My first ever trad route!! Super fun seconding this and getting to work a chimney a little and hand jam a little...

Skotch85 09/Apr/17 Lead β

Interesting climb. Especially when you're new to crackclimbing.

Luke Bray 20/Mar/17 Lead dog

Harder than I thought. Probably due to poor jamming skills...

purkle 22/Dec/16 2nd

Hard for the grade! Fell getting out of the chimney onto the face then failed to get a single good jam (midway btwn hand size and fist size for me) so had to layback to the top jugs. Need to practise different kinds of hand jams!!!

Top crack takes 3.5 Cam (hexes 7 or less). Didnt have the right gear. Hand jam is the way to finish it.
