An excellent and technical line up the hanging groove. Losing My Feathers - A low start, hanging from a good finger jug on the right and up into the groove is a powerful V8.


how do you climb this route. it seems much harder than a v3?

kris, its a very friction conditions dependent problem, if its cold and fresh it is easy, but if its slightly warm it can feel impossible. lay back high on the right side of the groove, high left toe on what litte there is availabe for feet. then the rest will come naturaly !!

Nice one. I managed it after about half an hour. Still think it more of a v4 than 3 but a good route none the less
