The superb crackline provides an irresistable jamming testpiece. Rumours of fallen blocks and increased grades can safely be ignored - this is a bog standard HVS 5a crack [moderator's note - this is very much a minority opinion!]. Gain the niche and squirm out of it into the crack. Jam joyously up this to jugs and glory.

βeta: A jammed block used to be there about where you move to the upper part of the crack. It came out sometime roundabout 1993/4. I thought at the time that it made a bit of difference,probably going from HVS 5a to an even better HVS 5b. Local opinion at the time was split with some thinking it was nearer E2, it seemed that it depended on how good your jamming was. Glad to see current opinion on here puts it at about HVS 5b.
