<< Valerie's Rib < The Grasper | Clapton's Crack > The Neb Direct >>
Grasper's bigger and harder brother gives desperately cramped bridging in a position of tremendous exposure. Start below a corner to the right of Grasper (Clapton's Crack).
1) 5c, 28m. Move leftwards into a niche and continue in the same direction to a small ledge. Make some hard moves up to another ledge in the centre of the wall. Some more testing climbing leads to overhangs level with the Grasper belay. Shuffle left to belay here.
2) 6b, 28m. Follow Grasper up to the groove and make tricky moves down and right to a ledge below the next groove over. Flamboyant shape-pulling, extreme effort and a lot of sweat and grunting seem to be the prerequisites for success.
