Horrible moves to get past the block & into the groove....
Quite tough for 4b but it is right grade .. there is nasty move involved!
a nice little climb ,secure enough at the crux where you might spend ten minutes going through the options, of how to progress, not one for the tall i would imagine!
I thought it was a nice little route but ended up with a solid jam with my right hand on the crux yet my entire body was facing outwards with right foot on left arete and left foot on the slab to the right. Not sure if JB did it that way but it's a nice little route!
Finished this route with a few new bruises and a little less skin.
This is a great fun route, anyone who doesn't like it, pah, I pity you. Swing onto the block by a funky juggy reach and heel-hook, rest in the chimney, and ease out into a prime jamming crack. Good line and solid 2 stars.
Some crazy moves as 'Fiend' says and very good gear
Not too hard and a lot of fun. The move into the bottom of the crack was quite easy I thought and a few jams sort out the exit.
Can't remember exactly what I did to surmount the bulge, I just remember one minute (and several minutes before that) I was cursing a sore foot and failing to work out any possible solution to the moves, and next attempt I was suddently standing on top of the block having unexpectedly found a reasonably graceful solution. Involved a right foot smear just right of the right arete, something with hands, then left foot straight on the block. Then almost got helmet stuck, by standing up rapidly without realising the crack was a little too narrow for that.
