It's named Bloody Hand. Singular not plural.
Excellent route.

This route seemed much harder than 5.7. I found Marie and Bastard easier and they are cracks in a corner and both are rated 5.9. Especially the last moves before the easy top out where the crack widens and goes slightly diagonal. What does everyone think? Perhaps i didn't read it right?

I find the route a very good for learning to jam, sure it's painful but it holds very well.

Some jams are awkward and might complicate things if you do them in the wrong sequence.
