The left-slanting crack is low in the grade but a bit awkward.

Much easier for the tall, who can reach past the hardest move.

i'm only 5 foot tall and found it pumpy.

At 6' 1" i found the jaming solid and brilliant, the crack just ran out too soon. Pulling past the top of the crack was quite strenuous and reachy and could see it possibly presenting problems for shorter climbers?

Quite a nice ledge route, as long as you ignore the route-description of it being a jamming crack. I did it in flip-flops, and didn't need any jamming at all... And no, I'm not particularly tall.

I found it to be a classic reachy jamming problem with a rounded top out...
Woker - 15/Jun/04

Solid jams? Only found one jam (admittedly solid) - rest was off balance on slopers.
Charlie - 05/Jul/04

Easy if you like jamming.

Nice climbing, good holds and jams.

Solid jamming up the crack for both feet and hands, good little route. Might be a bit harder for those lacking in stature.
slack---line - 20/Jun/05

Only used about two hand jams as the crack gets too narrow, and you can reach up to the ledge (which wasn't as good as it looked as it was damp, and I fell off). Fun route.

Very easy solo route, not technical at all just airy leaning out at the top
