Rockfax Description
12m. Another of the superb jamming cracks that the crag abounds with. A tricky groove leads to a ledge then move right and motor up the soaring crack-line. © Rockfax

Superb and sustained jamming with a sting in the tail. Tried to overprotect the top and blew the clean lead.

Got pumped & had to pull up on a hex.

Brilliant climbing with perfect jams. Would have done it again if the crack hadn't wrecked the back of my hands. Baluster crack is next on the list.

The only thing we climbed today:( Despite dry rock and sunshine conditions was atrocious. Wind must have been gusting to 50mph buy half way up the route. We could barely move between each bomber hand jam. Hands were completely numb after about 2 minutes. All quite exhilarating but ultimately very unpleasant. It's probably a lovely route on the right day.

Backed off a few feet short of the top out. The crack opens up to just beyond the width of my first whilst the feet become slightly narrower than my boot giving both poor hands and feet. I think the top was the crux, although getting established on the crack is also tricky. First go at crack climbing. Sandbag HVS, very good gear if you have lots of cams.

Fantastic! Got up from the big ledge into the crack but forgot where my other leg was going and had to hang on the rope. Superb Sarah-sized fist jams al the way :-D Leading would be a different story with gear and ropes getting in the way!

Nice sinker fist jam at the top. I like it, though it felt like E1
