Climb the right-hand continuous crack directly, initially up an awkward right-facing corner. The crack is a good intro to the art of hand-jamming being both mild and very protectable.

Hmm. I found it neither mild (at the bulge) nor particularly protectable (at the bottom). Harder than Xmas Crack.

Great fun for all.

harder than xmas crack?!! no way, this is serious walk in the park territory compared with that.

Great climb, to be honest I thought it very similar in difficulty to xmas crack. I think this route feels like a HS You often see people struggling on the crux overhang, I think this is just too much of an undertaking for a S. Also the start is atleast 4b. So I think all in all HS 4b.

i think the crux on this one is tough for a s4a. felt hs 4b to me.

severe 4b covers it, there is 1 hard move off a good ledge with a good runner at your waist, everything else is not too hard, a very good route though

I also felt that it was harder than Xmas Crack and I did them back to back. Partner (seconding) only managed start with coaching and failed on the bulge which I believe was harder and more like 4b.

Best severe at stanage? Did this for the second time yesterday and thought getting off the ground was the crux, however definately not 4b. Worth three stars.

Led this in January, then seconded today. The crux is figuring out how to get over the bulge at half height. If you get it right (like I did today) then it's 4a. It's hard to figure out though and I didn't find it at all obvious first time - making this feel awkward 4b/4c. A must-do-classic all the same.

This is certainly HS 4b, a good route but the worst on the Trinity wall.
Al Evans - 30/Sep/06

I agree it's harder than Christmas Crack, although I did only second CC, and lead this. Thought this was undergraded! But then I was climbing in the dark with a head torch on and someone else's rack. Still, normally when I've found a route hard and top out, I can look back and go 'ok, it wasn't so bad after all', but this one I reckon it was tough. Harder than 4a anyway.
