The hanging groove is a struggle to enter though at least it has overhead gear. It isn't much easier above either. Often frigged!

Fabulous route that is probably E1 5b, but feels quite a bit harder because it is so pumpy. Solid jams up the overhanging crack, if you can keep going!

A highly entertaining and very safe struggle.

Good route with good gear.

The upper part of the crack is desperate for those of us not used to grit-jamming. Also note, this gets tech 5c in the BMC guidebook.

A short but good fun route that should be done by anyone in the area. Good gear and solid finger/hand jams provide the pleasure.

Hmmm, As usually I managed to avoid jamming the top half of this probably making it really difficult.
Where is the solid hand jam? The top bit?
