The battered thin cracks in the left wall of the groove, moving onto the left arete to gain the top. Direct is a half-a-grade harder.

Not quite as amenable a climb if you have big fingers!

Quite stiff but excellent protection. A good route.

I climbed this just knowing the grade, It felt very natural for me to climb it just using the crack and not the arete. In fact I really never noticed the arete. I dare say this says more about me than anything about the route. Sorry if this sounds a bit oblique!

Found it a bit tricky, but it was my first route back on grit after spanish limestone. Good gear all the way.

A good technical little route which will feel stiff for 4c !

VS 5a? Nice little route with loads of gear.

i found it slightly hard for vs but then i can't finger jam very well. my mate who has just started climbing secondede it with no trouble although he's 6'4" and could just reach the top ledge by stnding in the crack. bastard. vs 4c seems fair enough.

I think the finger-jamming on this is actually quite technical (and I like jamming !), and the feet at the top bit before the top aren't that good - it's quite steep. I'd stick with 5a.

Great training for Regent Street

the right grade, one hardish move, all well-protected. There is very little finger-jamming involved if you use the available holds.
