Rockfax Description
Fist-jamming at its best (not the contradiction in terms non-gritstoner's might imagine). Large gear is a must. Climb through the intimidating overhang to an uncomfortable niche then fist-jam and flail until the crack narrows and easier ground gives you a chance to survey the damage! © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown, Fred Ashton 1948.

βeta: E for effort. The gear is HVS and there's loads of it. It's a real fight for the tall as the niche is not that welcoming! The final flake is brilliant.

βeta: Much easier once the niche is reached, and is fist jamming really required?? A 3-star 'soft touch' E1.
