Description:

One pitch crack just above Anathema on the ledge across and to the left of Catchy Corner. A fun little crack to climb if waiting for Catchy C. 5.9 fists lead to an awkward move through a pod then into a thin hands to finger crack that goes to the anchors.

5 out of 5 stars Nice route

I did the left side crack first thinking this was Jardines Hand. Anyway, top roped this after noticing my mistake. A nice route.

4 out of 5 stars Long if you link it.

Not a classic but worth a go. You kinda have to rap through a tree back to the ledge. Its not that bad though. Pull some overhanging 5.9 fists and hands, a short offwidth like pod to the sling anchors. Don't stop there. Pull into the overhanging finger crack dihedral above and crank through tight fingers to a climactic finish. Definately worth doing.
