16m. (The Ape) The right-slanting crack steepens as it rises. A finger crack leads to a good rest. The crack then widens and becomes tricky, with the odd layback move and an awkward exit.
FA. Ben Campbell-Kelly. Kjell Skog 1976
Campbell-Kelly, an Englishman, had climbed extensively in Yosemite Valley in California, and “with this climb introduced us to harder jam cracks that had a much higher pain threshold,” said Kjell Skog.

Could be a top 50 for me. Nice place, good line, interesting Fistjamming. Felt very easy for the grade, but some sportclimbers failed because they had no idea about jamming.
