Rockfax Description
Mild at the grade and brilliant. An awkward start leads to a ledge then tackle the jamming crack up the shallow groove. © Rockfax

βeta: Did this today - quite greasy as it's been damp, so my hands kept sliding out of the crack, so definately worth the grade today but no doubt different in the dry (and if I wasn't out of practise). Nice line though!

βeta: I'm a beginner and I seconded this climb a couple of days ago and thought it was great. When I got to the top slab I completely forgot about jamming in the crack and laybacked it instead - I'll have to try it again and do it properly... :)

βeta: id have said HVD 4a for the top crack, but what the hell. Good for practising jamming if you avoid the facce-holds and only use the crack.
