Too-thin jams and slippery footholds make this one feel tricky.


I can't believe there are no comments on this. It's one of the best little problems in the Peak. It's the best of these two buttresses, always enjoyable. You can climb it in the wet (with gear). New people get to find out what a hand jam is. My mate phill aid climbed it in a downpour. I solo it every time I go to Burbage and it always cheers me up. Twenty foot of pure greatness IMO.

Must admit as a complete virgin, this being only my second ascent (being told by the boyfriend that we'd only do easy routes) found this absolutely brilliant...and definitely a good way to learn hand jams. It's a quick way to learn :-)

I also solo this just about every time I go but don't jam just a fine layback from start to finish...nice
