The right-hand crack is high in the grade. The disappointingly thin lower section gives a few very technical moves, before the respite of the wider crack above, which is solid HVS jamming.<br/>Original, E1 5b - Gain the top section from the crack of Medusa.

In its current state probably worth E4.

Did this today after a good cleaning - some of the nut slots were pretty choked. It is very similar to the first half of Pickpocket in terms of gear and difficulty, but without a second crux higher up, so perhaps easy E4 6a. Well worth its star, so instead of doing Wee Doris again, do this instead!

Has cleaned up nicely and perhaps best described in future guides as simply 'Gesmini' with the original start (from Medusa) relegated to an easier variant? A stiff E3 in it's current state, just shy of 2 stars?

Doh! Of course, I meant 'Gesemini'
