The polished boot-wide crack that splits the centre of the short wall is an awkward little customer.


I've lead E1 and this route scared the hell out of me. The crack is so polished that every single hand feels like it's going to go. Don't get me wrong, the pro is excellent (especially a hex in the top), it's just plain scary.

I agree with Nick's comments above! Don't use this as a short cut up to the top. It means hob-nail boot not rock boot width!

Dear Nick & Epic Ed,

Learn to jam and you'll find this an easy solo

have soloed up and down it a bunch but feels harder than VD for some reason? My friend's first lead, she thought it was nice.

This is a lovely little route. Definitely worth a star.

I led this today and thought it was a great route. It was not that polished.
