Climb into the niche and then the obvious left slanting crack. A classic of the crag.

The main reason I made the trip to high rocks, and totally worth it. Pleased to make it on the second attempt as well. First was suitably epic, what with all the faffing so I could get the shunt unloaded and descend. Jamming is coming on well, rope work not so much

This crack is the only route at High Rocks in condition atm while the rest is a barren slimy green wasteland. This is because I spent almost an hour with a towel cleaning it before climbing it again! You are welcome.

Lost it on the jams in the crack and fell off. Very good route, next time.

The classic crack climb on sandstone. Only use jams for hands. 12 minimum. 163.5 maximum (a la Tony Yaniro). Good jamming practise from fist to finger

Tricky start, excellent diagonal crack but couldn't manage finishing bulge

One of the best routes on SS of its standard (when it's dry!)
