8m. The hand-crack in a shallow groove gives good jamming. The least brutal pitch on this part of the cliff but still a battle.
Errm bit of a bitch this one. I can't jam for toffee so expect thats why the top is so hard for me.
I think if you can jam it's okay. I can't really and when I did it first at the top I had to use a crimp up right
erm...what's a 'gaston'?
Kind of a lay back, but up and behind you. Like what ben Moon does on the second hold on Brad Pit on Hard Grit.
The top bit felt more like a wrestling match than climbing - a refreshing change from suave face climbing though.
I personally love jamming but "the least brutal pitch on this part of the cliff" is not true - the top part of the route is tough and it feel like 5a/5b jamming.
Blimey. You've got to either have bloody mindedness or great jamming technique for this one.
It's a crack, if you don't trust your fists you'll struggle.
Real b*stard of a route, i'd give it HVS 5b, but that's just me.
It's not sustained enough plus it has great gear so I don't reckon it is HVS. Tough for VS though, nice moves at the top.
tried to onsight solo this but had to retreat,and i like jaming and think dexterity at millstone is easy.
Yeah, its def tough for VS. I led the Rasp cleanly then fell off this seconding - lol.
