10m. The mild jamming crack has good hidden layaway holds. Western Grit's answer to Froggatt's renowned Heather Wall.

A good start to jamming / laybacking, often overlooked.

A brilliant introduction to jamming

And has some of the best big-hex placements going - superb!!

I found myself using a lot of the hidden holds in the crack rather than jams though. Must be my small hands!!

Im glad people like the route. I did the first ascent in 1960, at the time it needed quite a bit of cleaning, heather out of the crack. I remember the crack used to have razor sharp crystals that scarred your hands if you tried to jam it too hard. Alan Taylor
