A wide crack in the slab leads to a big tree and loose finish. Quality jamming or use the small holds on either side.

Bit tricky to protect if you don't have large friends...cowbells just about work halfway up the crack...great route for a bit of mindless fistjamming though...

Like it says in the guide...if you like fist jamming its a very enjoyable. Iam still not sure i like fist jamming that much but the route is sound. Its not all jamming if you keep your eyes peeled.Grades spot on at VS4b

People with big fists will find it a path. People with smaller fists will think it more worth its grade !

Don't be put off if you and jamming don't see eye to eye. Use the crack for pro. and climb on the edges to the sides at the same grade. Or was that cheating?
