Rockfax Description
The thin crack in the left-hand side-wall of the gully has some good moves where you could do with knowing how to jam. Big cams can help and hinder. © Rockfax

βeta: HS 4b is fine. Nowhere near as hard as Amazon crack or Mutiny crack at Burbage.

βeta: Really enjoyed this. One of those routes it's so obvious what you have to do and where the gear is you can really enjoy it. The top niche was a bit damp this weekend, so I jammed both shoulders in to prevent me slipping - which was quite painful and made it harder to top out!

βeta: Led this as one to finish off the evening last week and couldn't believe the grade. Though short it is at least VS 4c (possibly even 5a). Like someone above, I laybacked the upper wider section after getting a good friend in the back of it. John Parkin

βeta: What a massive sandbag at HS. It's an excellent route though and the jamming is really good quality straight in.

βeta: Looked nice, but I can't really jam that well. Failed to get established, and backed off.

βeta: Definitely VS 4c, and high in the grade at that. And Steve - 'you must jam' - not true, my partner laybacked it!

βeta: Thought I was a competent HS leader and reasonable jammer before I tried this. If this is HS 4b I'm off to reappraise my status.

βeta: New to leading HS, and wish I'd read this before I had a go at the route! Flipping hard!

βeta: Nice jamming route, but a cruel sandbag at only HS 4b (and probably HVS 5b if you can't jam!)
