A fingery and tenuous little wall climb with a distinct crux. Keep away from the crack of Jam on the right.

Excellent route with nice climbing throughout. The route is as enjoyable as its name.

A real sting in the tail.

The crimps near the top are getting way to polished, not nice in sweaty weather.
Pete Scott - 04/Jun/03

This route is excellent - I dont think the polish really detracts as it is mainly crimping anyway.

Damn good route. well worth doing.
Marcus Brewer - 07/Apr/04

Crimps aren't polished but it does get greasy easily in hot weather. Hard to read and quite balancy/tricky. Quality sequence of moves - most enjoyable...

Becomes a good warm up once you've climbed it once.
If you sweat like a normal human, the crimps do get a little greasy.
Almost decked off the crux once when my fingers greased off (sleepy belayer!).

Lovely. A little polished, but not distracting. Smashing crimp high on the face.
Henry - 29/Mar/05

Balancy and interesting sequence of moves, from jugs to slopers and then crimps. Why oh why did they put the bolts at the top just out of reach???

What fun to onsight! It feels precarious and very satisfying when you get to the yop. Nice one.

Did this on my first go. Excellent warm up if you're looking to try something harder. Medium 6a+.
