Great value. Studying at UKC Crack School paid off although I was marooned at the bottom of the fist jamming crack for ages trying to work it out. Very pleasing when I cracked it as my strength was waning.

Had to rest on this, got flash pump and ran out of stamina. Quite easy moves all the way up, just wish I had a bit more juice in my tank! In hindsight I should have just blasted on through and gone for it but I'm a wimp. Some good jamming all the way up this. Lovely. But windy!
