Rockfax Description
The roof crack via a jam and jugs is easiest if you stay out from the crack as much as possible. A knee-bar might be of help. © Rockfax

βeta: One of the very few routes you absolutely have to jam on... Boulder problem, not a route, but a fairly hard one for 5b.

βeta: This is a bomb proof jam followed by a large jug. VS 4c in my book.

βeta: Just "accidentally" soloed this while demonstrating how to get the hand jam in on the lip. "Then you can get your foot up, grab the break and... oops!" Certainly went a lot smoother as a solo than when I led it and I think once you've got the good breaks you could probably jump off easily enough. Such a nice route... I was keen to do this ever since seeing Best Forgotten Art.

βeta: It's a nice boulder problem... Much easier if you don't faff about with ropes and gear!

βeta: I think this really only deserves VS. It is a one-move wonder (5b is about right), but it's as safe as houses with a big cam stuffed up the crack. And after that it isn't even moderate. Nice though, I'd give it a star...
