From the cave, battle into the evil narrowing crack and heave on the creaky flake to reach easier ground. An exhausting and torrid thrash for most. © Rockfax

Ha ha ha quite hard today took a few goes

Just like a horizontal vs
g-up 4(!) falls, good fun, thank you
bit of a fight! rope jammed in the top of the crack, made topping out unneccessarily "fun"
right fist! nice one. will go back for a lead. well protected.
Though could not make it, this was hugely enjoyable climb! I will definitely come back and climb!
date is a guess. i remember climbing up and down a few times and thinking it seemed impossible until i took out the cam that was blocking the place my fist needed to be. after that it was still quite tough but eminently possible
