Can someone enlighten me with beta on how to jam your hands and/or fingers for the first tier? I've worked the crack on top rope to lead Trident but I'am obviously missing something here... I've never been so miserable on a project.

Beta from someone who has actually done the climb on lead please!

It will depend on the size of your hand!

If you can't get a hand or tight hand jam look at doing a ring lock (finger stack). Don't forget about jamming your feet!

A good resource for learning jamming techniques is The Crack Climber's Technique Manual by Kent Pease.

My friend lost feeling in her pinky for a couple months, it's some tough jamming depending on your hand size and reach.
I can't lead it, flailed a lot before managing it, takes a while to dial it...
